Teri and Cherokee
Jazmyn at Graduation 2009
This year at the North American Horse Fest in Novi, MI. Someone brought me an article written on equine Dentistry by a vet. It said that to do dentistry properly on a horse you need three things.
You need a speculum, which is a device which holds the horses mouth open.
You need a bright light source, to examine the horses mouth and teeth. My speculum had a led light source built into it.
You need sedation to work on the horse ? After reading the article, she asked me what I thought about it. I told her that I was glad that horses can't read. Because most horses will allow me to do their basic dental care without sedation. Not all horses will allow dentistry to be done without sedation, and some horses will require sedation to complete the work that they need for corrective dental procedures
