Dentistry is an important part of your horse’s health and their teeth should be checked at least once a year.

In order for our horse’s to perform correctly they need to be comfortable in and around their mouth area, and sharp edged teeth can cause serve discomfort.

The horse’s teeth have evolved to chew grass and fibre which wears down the teeth at a rate of 2 to 3mm per year this is balanced by eruption at the same rate. When our horses’ graze the natural action used to eat grass brings the chewing surface of the opposing teeth into contact and the teeth wear down normally quite evenly. However, when our horses eat hay they don’t use the same motion and this results in sharp edges that can lead to ulceration of the cheeks and tongue and lead to pain.

The Stables Equine Practice can perform equine dentistry work involving the study, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases, disorders and conditions of the oral cavity area and the associated structures.

Some horses will need to undergo advance procedures and at The Stables Equine Practice we can provide a range of advanced treatments to ensure your horse has complete dental care.  With our great facilities and portable x-ray we are well equipped to diagnose and perform all dental procedures.
