Synchrony of oestrous

Pregnancy test at 15 days

Horse’s teeth continue to grow throughout most of their life. The grinding of their upper cheek teeth against their lower ones can cause the upper molars to develop sharp points on the outside of the teeth, and the lower teeth sharp points on the inside. There are other less common problems such as ramps, hooks etc.
An equine dental includes:
Full dental examination
Removal of feed impactions
Sharp points floated (ground down) to prevent cheek ulcers and lacerations to the tongue, and pain where the bit engages.
Floating of premolar and molar hooks
Wolf teeth removal
Removal of ‘caps’ (deciduous teeth)
- Full lameness work-up including a thorough physical examination and diagnostics such as nerve blocks, x-ray and ultrasound (tendon ultrasound).
- For the diagnosis of fractures, infection and other.
- For the diagnosis of tears in the flexor tendons.
- State-of-the-art endoscope for the assessment of the larynx, guttural pouches, trachea and oesophagus. This is a useful tool for the diagnosis of countless upper respiratory conditions and infections.
- Why not have a vet check a horse over before you commit to purchasing. We use an EVA (Equine Veterinary Association) approved examination.
Vaccinations available are;
- Tetanus + Strangles (2in1)
All our vets are Hendra accredited.
