Older Horse Makes Weird Sounds When Eating
So I just moved my 26 year old Arab/QuarterHorse cross to a new boarding place and I noticed that when he was eating grass the other day, it almost sounded as if there was a squeaking noise coming from his teeth/mouth? Then today when I was out there, I was feeding him his senior feed and when he was chewing it there was like a weird grinding, clunking sound? I have never heard him make either of these noises before when eating.
I had his teeth checked and floated about 2 weeks ago, just before i moved him this past weekend to the new boarding place. Prior to that his teeth were checked last spring. The vet did say that he had 2 missing teeth in the back of his mouth and a few loose teeth.
Also the lady that watches over the boarding stable said that she noticed that he was chewing and spitting out balls of hay, so she was gonna try him on another type of hay.
So my question is, should I get another vet out to take another look at his teeth and get them re-done or is there something else i can do?
Any help or advice is greatly appreciated!
