I'm getting an 18 year old mare in the spring. She has been well cared for all her life and is if anything a little chubby. I don't know if she has had her teeth floated very often or not. I'm just wondering how often I should have them done when I get her. Should I get her done every year even if there seems to be no problem, or should I just have a checkup every 2 or 3 years? Since I've never owned a horse before I really don't know this kind of thing so any help would be much appreciated!
Also, I live in Alberta, Canada and I was wondering what a vet might charge for a float to be done? Will just any vet do it or does it have to be a equine dentist?r
