How often does my horse need a dental? It depends on the horse. Some horses need it every 6 months, every year or every two years. We recommend that you have a thorough exam done every 6 months or year. A thorough exam includes sedating the horse so that we can put a speculum in their mouth and get a good long look at the teeth, gums and cheeks. This is the best way to examine the mouth and know with accuracy what is really happening with those chompers!
It is important to take care of the teeth starting at an early age. Maintaining a healthy mouth will help to keep your horse(s) in good weight, health, and comfort. Tooth pain is no fun and they often times will react with bad habits to tell you "owww that hurts when you pull back on the bit." Some horses never show signs, and unless you have a vet look in their mouth you might not know they have a problem.
Maintaining a mouth is cheaper than fixing major problems from lack of maintenance. Dentals are done typically in Spring and Fall along with vaccinations. Annuals are certainly encouraged in Winter and Summer. It's your choice.
