Your horse has been your friend for a long time. Injuries or aging may require your horse to have extensive lay-up or permanent retirement. As they age and lifestyles change, horses are more prone to problems caused by bad teeth, metabolic issues, and arthritis. Even in times of relative inactivity, proper care should be a priority. Even in retirement horses deserve the best care available, and we can help you make this time happy and healthy.
We use both hand tools and power equipment to perform quality dental procedures. We also remove wolf teeth in young horses and loose teeth when necessary for our older patients.
