ABOUT EQUINE DENTISTRY

Proper oral examinations and regular dental care is vital to maintaining the health and well being of your horse. The digestive process begins in a horse's mouth and efficient mastication is crucial for proper digestion. A well balanced mouth is a key factor to allowing a horse to perform at it's highest level. 

 

Most equine dentistry involves prevention. If your horse's teeth are regularly cared for, the maintenance process will not be overwhelming and you should be able to avoid most major dental complications.
