How is my horse going to live without teeth?

Routine dentistry together with complete pelleted feed helps our equine senior citizens live longer, healthier lives.  An Equine Senior feed or the equivalent, supplies your horse with the proper nutrition without complete mastication.

...BUT HOW IS MY HORSE GOING TO LIVE WITHOUT TEETH?

THE TEETH THAT WERE EXTRACTED CAUSED YOUR HORSE MORE HARM THAT GOOD.  LOOSE, INFECTED TEETH ARE detrimental TO YOUR HORSE & ARE A MAJOR SOURCE OF INFECTION resulting in a compromised immune system and a shorter life.


If we follow the example of our curious youth, by learning more about the benefits of dentistry, we'll see horses living longer, healthier lives!

Prior to the rebirth of equine dentistry, the development of additional instrumentation, methods, procedures, and before they began to receive routine dentistry, horses were referred to surgical facilities for extractions.  This meant that the tooth was repelled externally frequently leaving draining holes that would not heal.  It was very costly as it required general anesthesia.  Now horses teeth can be removed through the mouth yielding far better results for healing and enhancing their longevity because we can continue to provide them with routine dental care before it becomes urgent and life threatening.
