About

Dentistry

Looking after your horse’s teeth is an important aspect of their health care. The teeth can develop sharp edges and uneven wear which can compromise their ability to grind their food sufficiently which in turn can result in a drop in condition. Teeth issues can also cause behavioural problems as the horse may attempt to alleviate the pain, from example the bit in its mouth.

For your horse to perform and look its best, they will need regular dental care. We recommend for a horse under 5 years to be checked twice a year, or every 6 months. Over 5 years of age to be checked once a year, every 12 months. If they have any pre-existing dental issues such as, but not limited to, large hooks, a waved mouth, or periodontal disease, they should be seen every 3 months, or as directed by your veterinarian.

At Perth Equine Hospital we are well equipped to give your horse a full and thorough dental examination, using hand rasps and power tools in a secure and safe environment in our clinic. We are also able to come to you to perform this service depending on your facilities.

We are able to perform:

  • Routine dental work
  • Tooth extractions
  • Wolf teeth removal
  • Cap removal
  • Dental radiographs
  • Corrective dental work

We are also happy work alongside your dental specialist if needed.
