Preventative dental care is a crucial part of your horse’s overall health and it is recommended to have your horse’s teeth examined by a veterinarian annually. Horse’s teeth continually erupt throughout their life and uneven wear can cause them to develop painful sharp point, ramps, waves, hooks, and other problems.
Dental care is important to maintain your horse’s ability to effectively chew, and can also greatly improve your horse’s daily comfort.
Regular dental examinations can identify dental problems that are significantly easier to address when caught early.
Regular dentistry is also important to maintain maximal performance levels in sport horses and pleasure horses.
The Blue Skies veterinarians are trained and equipped to provide dental care. We examine and float teeth under sedation using specialized powered tools for the comfort and safety of our patients.
