Regular dental maintenance is essential to your horse’s overall health. It is recommended that your horse receives a thorough dental examination at least once a year. These exams are performed to ensure good oral health and, if needed, to remove sharp enamel points or other dental abnormalities that may cause pain or discomfort and decrease performance. The sedation and mouth speculum that our veterinarians use have made these dental procedures safe, low stress, and gentle on the horse. We utilize motorized battery operated power-float equipment and are able to address each tooth individually. We can perform dental services at the office or on the farm with proper facilities.
