Equine Dental Health

At Blue Ridge Equine Clinic, our veterinarians are fully equipped to handle your horse’s dental needs, including:

  • Routine dental exams
  • Dental floats (power float available)
  • Tooth removal
  • Dental imaging
  • Horses aged six months to six years and horses over fifteen years should have a dental check at least once per year, as horses in these age groups can have rapid changes in their teeth. Signs that your horse may require dental attention include dropping feed, losing weight, head tossing, or being fussy with the bit when riding. Our veterinarians can evaluate your horse’s dental needs and provide appropriate treatment to keep your horse at peak health and performance.
