I agree with My Beau... I will only use a dentist for my horses teeth. They may charge more but they went to school and studied a horses mouth. Where a vet may have spent a little time there. I have seen many people in this area use vets only to mess up a horses teeth. My thought on the price issue is you get what you pay for. And about the sedation... Im in Fl and they are allowed to sedate. But I have the drugs to do so myself if need be.
Many people have sighed for the 'good old days' and regretted the 'passing of the horse,' but today, when only those who like horses own them, it is a far better time for horses. ~C.W. Anderson
