DENTISTRY

Oral and dental health can have a significant impact on a horse’s wellbeing, performance and lifespan.
Teeth are an important part of the digestive tract and can be the cause of many severe disorders such as emaciation, colic and choke.
Moreover, teeth problems can lead to a decrease in overall performance.
To examine the oral cavity properly it is vital for us to sedate your horse.
We recommend that horses under the age of 6 have a veterinary dental check every 6 months.
The older horse should also have his teeth checked by a vet annually, or when any of the following are first noticed – dropping of feed, fighting with the bit, losing weight or a general loss of performance.
We are able to perform a comprehensive, range of preventative and surgical dental procedures.
