Dental

Dental health is of utmost importance to your horse's well-being, whether it is a retired companion or performance horse. As qualified vets we are trained to look at and assess your horse's mouth.

When horses are living together it is especially important that their teeth are examined at 6 monthly intervals.

 

Clinical signs of dental disease

Foul smelling mouth

Dropping food (quidding)

Smelly nasal discharge

Facial swelling

Bitting problems

Schooling issues

 

Routine manual dental treatments (consultations, wolf teeth removal, routine floats) can be carried out on a Zone Visit.

It is often beneficial to carry out dental work under light sedation; this allows a thorough examination and assessment to be performed. 

If 3 or more horses at the same yard are booked on a dental visit, the visit fee will not be charged and you are able to specify your day and time required.
