Routine oral examinations and dental care is essential to the overall health of your horse. On average, we recommend an oral examination be performed at least once a year.
Oral and dental examinations begin with a discussion of your horse’s dental history including any weight changes and eating abnormalities, nasal discharge or foul odors, as well as performance issues.
Proper oral examination with sedation and an oral speculum, allows for a complete oral examination and for dentistry to be performed safely and effectively. Most dental floats are performed with motorized equipment.
Dental services are scheduled with either Dr. Martin or Dr. Waring, both of whom have experience and training in equine dentistry.
