Has Your Horse Seen the Dentist Lately ?
In the late 1890s to early 1900's equine dentistry was very popular, due to the fact that the horse was used as a primary means of transportation and farm power. Then as the automobile and other sources of power became popular dental care of horse's diminished. From the 1980s until present many new techniques and equipment have been developed for equine dental care.
Currently what is lacking in equine dental care is knowledge and education of horse owners and care givers. It is safe to say that less than 25% of horses have ever had any type of dental care. Of the horses that have had dental care, many horse owners think that having a horse's teeth floated is all that needs to be done. While floating a horse's teeth is a step in the right direction, in not all cases is it the complete care that the horse needs. Floating generally refers to removing the sharp points along the cheek teeth. These sharp points are the result of normal wear, growth, and the types of feed used. Many horses have additional dental problems that are missed by a routine float or an untrained eye.
About our website
We have looked at alot of websites about equine dentistry, some are very detailed and complicated for the average horse owner to understand. We attempted to provide basic dental information, and information about our services without including too much technical information. Please check our site often as we will be updating it often.
We understand that for some people a horse is just a horse, but for our customers their horse is one of their children and we treat their horses as if they were our own horse. We encourage horse owners to be present when we are working on your horse to see the horse's dental problems and answer any questions that you may have about the horse's dental care.
