Myths of Equine Dentistry
Written by Carl Mitz, Bandalero’s Equine Dental Provider
- Only old horses need to be floated.
- I feed corn, so my horse doesn’t need to be floated.
- Fat horses surely won’t need to be floated.
- I do not ride my horse(s), so they don’t need to be floated.
These statements are simply not true! All horses require routine dental maintenance, from cap extractions, tooth extractions, floating, molar extractions, incisor extractions, wave complex reduction, and the list goes on. Proving routine dental care ensures the health and longevity of your horse.
