ROUTINE EXAMINATIONS & VACCINES
"An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure" -Benjamin Franklin.
Routine wellness examinations and vaccinations ensure that your horse will be in the best form they can, enhancing your horse's well being and your own. Vaccinations are recommended every 6 months to one year.
Routine dental care is essential for your horse. Horse teeth are hypsodont, or constantly erupting. Check out this PDF here for more information. As horses eat they grind their teeth there are edges that do not oppose, and so sharp points and edges will emerge over time. The edges can become so sharp that they cause ulcers or cuts in the mouth.
Veterinarians use tools to remove and smooth out the sharp points. This procedure is called "floating" teeth. Regular dental care is essential to a long and healthy life for your equine companion.
