Summer has officially started in the UK! Here’s an interesting fact for you, did you know the phrase ‘dog days of summer’ used to refer to sweltering summer days has more to do with the stars than dogs?
The Roman’s ‘dies caniculares‘ began towards the end of July when the star ‘Sirius’ (known as the “Dog Star”) began to rise in the sky just before the sun.
The star was so bright that the Romans believed it gave extra heat to the sun, and was responsible for hot days in summer!
While we’re waiting for the first ‘dies caniculares‘, let’s get stuck in to the latest upcoming CPD opportunities!

“To Ab or not Ab: The Dental Antibiotic Conundrum” by Rachel Perry
The use of antibiotics by the veterinary profession is currently under much scrutiny as we are globally on the brink of a pharmacological crisis. Every time we prescribe antibiotics for a patient we should therefore have a strong and provable rationale that has been clinically considered. Dentistry is perhaps one area in which antibiotics are overused. This webinar aims to summarise the need (or not!) for your dental patients.
