Equine Dental Care
Before receiving dental care, your horse should get a thorough oral examination, which can be aided by anesthesia, a speculum, a light, and a mirror or camera. Specific therapy procedures will be guided by the information gathered during the evaluation. Dental floating is a procedure that eliminates uneven, unworn, sharp points from the cheek teeth and modifies the chewing surfaces as needed. Periodontal disease should be addressed if it is present when your horse is sedated to have its teeth floated.

Equine Laser Therapy
If your horse experiences a soft tissue injury, chronic pain, or a wound that needs some more help healing, our doctors may add Laser Therapy to your pet’s treatment plan. Therapeutic laser is the application of light energy to areas of the body to stimulate and accelerate healing. Therapeutic laser reduces pain by decreasing inflammation, as well as by decreasing tissue chemicals that stimulate pain and by affecting nerve conduction. The therapeutic laser also enhances healing by increasing microcirculation (blood flow through the smaller blood vessels of the body), stimulating cellular activity, and increasing growth factors.
