The most common question asked......
Many clients ask 'so how do horses cope in the wild?' . In the wild horses are grazing on much tougher terrain, they have there
heads down in the natural position foraging, in many cases they don't live as long and they are not ridden. The domesticated horse
grazes on much finer/better/richer grass, has access to hay, haylage and hard feeds which they wouldn't have in the wild and
of course hay nets! This means there teeth may not wear down equally, it makes it harder for caps to shed (baby teeth), sharp
enamel points are produced and decay in the teeth is more common because of the feeds and licks we provide. Its our job as a
dentist to keep the horses mouth as balanced and as comfortable as possible so you get the best out of your trusty steed! Equine dental treatments can be traced back thousands of years. It was a common job for horse men during World War 1, there were hundreds of equine dentists back then treating the war horses.
