The British Veterinary Dental Association (BVDA) has asked a business to remove the BVDA logo from its labelling.
In a statement, the BVDA said that Pet Dentist Products of Watford is selling a number of pet products and an e-book using the BVDA logo.
The BVDA said it has no connection with Pet Dentist Products or its products and does not and never has endorsed it or the products concerned and that it does not endorse any products or services.
It said: “BVDA has not given permission to use the BVDA logo (the copyright of which rests with BVDA), either explicitly or implicitly, to this company or its owner.
“BVDA does not permit its members to use the BVDA logo to publicise their own services.
“BVDA will, on occasion, after consideration and subject to stringent conditions, endorse the Veterinary Oral Health Council Seal for products which have genuinely qualified for this seal, and permit the BVDA logo to be used on packaging only as a sign of endorsement of this seal.”
A spokesman for Pet Dentist said: “As a member of the BVDA I value the relationship that I have with it and will work with the BVDA in order to address any concerns that it may have.”
