Good dental health is vital to your horse's overall well being and overall health. Oral health cannot and should not be separated from the health of the rest of the horse's body. Many advancements have been made meaning horses are routinely living to be in their 20's or 30's. This makes routine dental care even more important for welfare of your horse. A small problem that is recognized and corrected at an early age rarely becomes a large problem that we see in many of today's geriatric horse population. Resent research shows that horse's teeth that function normally and have a normal grinding pattern actual wear slower and last longer. We recommend an oral exam once a year.
"The better your horse's teeth are maintained, the longer they will last. The longer your horse's teeth last, the longer your horse will last" - Dr. Travis Beasley
Oral endoscopy provides us with a detailed and magnified view of all aspects of the teeth and other tissues of the horse's mouth. This improved visualization aides in diagnosis and confirms findings. Oral endoscopy also enables us to maintain detailed photo and video records - great for follow-up exams and consults.
Oral endscopy (oral exam) and the occlusal adjustment (float) are performed under standing sedation. Owners can visualize the teeth first hand and are welcome to watch the entire exam and necessary dental procedures.
The welfare of your horse is our first priority.
