Regular dental care is essential to the long-term health of the horse. Horse’s teeth continuously erupt throughout their life leaving them prone to developing sharp points and hooks. This can result in soft tissue trauma within the mouth, poor performance, and weight loss.
A routine oral examination by a veterinarian is crucial to keep our equine partners in good body condition and performing at their peak. Our veterinarians provide compassionate, low-stress care for high performance athletes as well as companion and geriatric horses.
