Routine dental care is essential to your horse’s health. Periodic examinations and regular maintenance, such as floating, are especially necessary today for a number of reasons such as a modified diet and eating patterns through domestication and confinement.
Stress, strain or injury can take a toll on any horse, even one with no obvious conformation defects. When lameness occurs, you should contact your veterinarian promptly. A prompt examination can save you time, money and frustration by diagnosing and treating the problem immediately, possibly preventing further damage.
If you own horses long enough, sooner or later you are likely to confront a medical emergency. As a horse owner, you must know how to recognize serious problems and respond promptly, taking appropriate action while awaiting the arrival of your veterinarian.
