Equine Dentistry is becoming increasingly more important to horse owners, and for good reason. We all know how painful a tooth ache can be, and unfortunately horses can’t tell us what is going on in their mouths. The way the horse communicates its pain may be through what is perceived to be disobedience such tossing their head up or resistance to the bit. It could be through their eating habits- losing weight, dropping feed, or excessive saliva when eating. Or maybe the horse won’t give any sign that they are in pain!
This is why dentistry is extremely important, and why is should always be performed by a qualified Equine Dental Vet. Dental examinations are much more complex than simply filing down sharp enamel points.
Our veterinarians are trained Equine Dental Vets, and we use a PowerFloat, which allows for a much more effective dental examination.
