Equine Dentistry has moved on so far in the last 10-15 years, that we can now treat so many more issues which we weren’t previously able to do. There is so much more to it than routine check ups and rasping sharp edges.

In our latest podcast Liz Somerville and Jane Haden MRCVS talk about the amazing advances in dentistry, how often horses should be checked and what qualifications your horse’s dentist should have, along with other important topics:

  • What should be checked in a routine dental examination?
  • Are hand rasps or motorised rasps better?
  • Why do we advise sedation during routine dentals?
  • How often should your horse’s teeth be checked?
  • What are equine dental charts?
  • The importance of dental checks for insurance
