How Often Should I Have My Horse's Teeth Examined?

We recommend having your horse’s teeth examined every six to twelve months in order to maintain your horse’s dental health. If we identify any issues that require more regular treatment plans then we will inform you of this at the time.

Will My Horse Need To Be Sedated?

In some cases, your horse may need to be sedated for dental work. This is to reduce their anxiety, relax their muscles and relieve any pain.
