I just had to post here, just in case any of you other Michiganders are having the same problem I was with Equine Dentists.
I had been searching for a dentist for awhile & for some reason I seemed to get the run around from most of the ones I was calling. I would leave messages & not get call backs, which I understand, you get busy & whatnot, it happens. Or I would make appointments & they would be cancelled. No joke this happened 3 times!
So, finally I posted, in desperation on a Facebook Horse Group asking for advice. A saintly horse owner, in all her infinite wisdom, recommended I try Kendall Lundstrom Equine Dentist.
After playing phone tag for a few days, I finally connected with Mr. Lundstrom's daughter, Shannon & she said she could be out the next day, if I were available.
Not only did they come out the next day AS SCHEDULED, but they were AMAZING with my horse! These guys knew EXACTLY what they were doing & there was not one moment of fear or stress for my big boy. And they talked me down, too! I was so nervous about having someone I didn't know working on him, as he is so sensitive, but he didn't balk ONCE.
These guys float without sedation, which was a big deal to me. I didn't want my boy to associate the dentist with feeling like crap from sedation. I don't know if that happens or not, but I know my dogs LOVE to go to the vet because they associate him with treats, so...
Anyhow, I'm sorry I made this so long, but I just HAD to throw it out there, because if anyone is going through what I went through to find someone to do simple maintenance on my horse's teeth, it's just plain out crazy.
And as an added bonus, Mr. Lundstrom's fee was 100% reasonable in my book, especially once I saw how good he was with my big baby.
