Regular, thorough dental work is important in maintaining your horses’ health and performance every 6-12 months.
Only a vet can examine your horse and look at any other health issues at the same time, which can be valuable in assessing poor performance. We can sedate your horse to enable the back of the mouth to be rasped more effectively and ultimately, resulting in higher level of comfort.
Signs of dental problems can vary but the most common signs are:
- Subtle changes in ridden performance
- Difficulty in chewing and quidding
- Weight loss
- Nasal discharge
- Lymph node enlargement
- Head shaking
- Foul smelling breath
