Advanced equine dentistry by veterinarians passionate about horse health

If your horse is located in an area where there are limited facilities such as water or electricity our Equine Dental Service features a self contained mobile crush.

Once your horse is safely secured in the crush an initial health check and examination of the mouth is carried out by our veterinarians, prior to sedation.

A sedative is then given to allow a detailed, proper examination of the entire mouth. A gag is then placed in the mouth to hold the mouth open and a light is used to allow an even closer examination of all the teeth.

 

Problems are then diagnosed and charted on a dental chart. A “powerfloat” (electric rasp) is then used to remove the sharp enamel points, hooks and any other problems, leaving your horse comfortable.
