As a horse owner myself, I know how important it is to have my horse's teeth checked regularly. I play Polocrosse and I need my horses to be in peak condition. The teeth can affect how they eat, therefore affecting their condition and how well they keep their weight on. Teeth can also affect the way the horse acts. For example, if the horse is in pain it could be bad tempered, throwing its head, opening its mouth and even rearing.
I have worked with various equine dentists and vets, from various parts of the world, including International zoo vets and vets trained at the Royal Veterinary College. I offer a professional service that includes full examination of the head, jaw and teeth, explaining how it all works and how the performance of the horse can be affected by any problems. I am fully insured and mobile; I cover Essex, Suffolk, Herts, and have contact with equine dentists all over the world. I also travel to anywhere that zoos or wildlife parks require me to attend.
You will receive a full examination of the skull, all the surrounding muscles and a complete examination of all arcades of the teeth. This is to make sure your horse is achieving the three point balance and the jaw is in alignment. When the initial examination has been carried out, I will complete an evaluation sheet. This charts the treatment that your horse requires which I will discuss with you before starting. On completion I will record the work I have done on the evaluation sheet and advise on when your horse should see the dentist again (usually every six months). This will be noted on the evaluation sheet and a copy given to you for your records, which can be kept with your horse passport.
I am equipped with power tools/rasps for more advanced procedures and removal of large dental overgrowths. I also have a full range of dental Instruments for miniature and smaller equines. I have access to full veterinary facilities with vets for advanced work. I can organise x-rays, sedation, etc. with local vets if needed. All advanced dental work is done with vets and only a vet can sedate your equine.
