We consider dental care to be an essential part of a horses routine preventative health plan, and can be conveniently tied in with routine vaccinations and health checks.
Signs That Your Horse Needs Its Teeth Checked:
- Difficulty in chewing and dropping half chewed food
- Head shaking
- Resisting the bit, bridle
- Eating very slowly
- Regular colic episodes
- Excessive salivation
- Failure to keep condition on
- Nasal discharge
- Bad smell coming from the mouth area
- Discharge coming from the mouth due to an abscess.
Horses with sharp edges on their teeth are more likely to be uncomfortable with a bit in their mouth, particularly if they are being asked to hold their head in an unnatural position during ridden work. D
ental problems can exhibit themselves in a variety of ways such as head shaking, reluctance to go onto the bit, lack of response to the bit, abnormal head carriage, and misbehavior when ridden. Offering state of the art diagnostic technology, we provide a friendly and professional service to all kinds of equine, ranging from international competition horses to beloved family pets.
