For sedation and floating was 112 for my gelding. He doesnt do anything for coming out and seeing them.

I had problems obviously with floating teeth a gal had suggested this-

Horse Dentistry School | Equine Dental Training at Advanced Whole Horse Dentistry School in Upstate NY

This lady had the same problems I did and found a gal who was trained by Spencer Laflure. I never used her....I am just passing along the info......

She claimed this gal came out and "sedated" her horses by using licorice in their nose. By law they are not allowed to sedate because she is not a vet. She floated their teeth in a "natural" position...which would be head down grazing. That is when their teeth are properly aligned rather than tied up in the air for a power float. She claimed that she could tell if a horse was "off" somewhere just by looking at his teeth.

DISCLAIMER: I did not see this myself or endorsing it. Just passing on something related to the subject for you guys to ponder and read....

My trimmer recommended them as well and says that they are amazing. I actually started a thread about 2 weeks ago. Natural Balance Dentistry? I'm hoping to get my TB done within the next few months.

When you get it done, let me know what you think. I am very curious. Especially given the luck that I have had. I am prone to think it is a lot like Natural Balance Shoes or Natural Horsemanship...which seems to translate to more more money..... tee he...

Bahahahahahaha.... He's looking like a carpenter, not vet/dentist!

I think I'll stick to the "by hand" procedure....

;) he's a vet...and gentle as can be. He went slowly and took quite a while continually checking Jake's teeth to ensure he was doing a good job. Jakie boy was a sleepyhead throughout the whole procedure.

I have a wonderful equine dentist-I have never seen him sedate, and we have happy horses thru the whole thing. He is closer to Rochester-$75 for a float. I don't remember how much extractions are-it has been years since one of mine needed any. Just need to plan LOTS of extra time-he is a "chatter".

Some of my friends use vets tho-I refer to it as "spring cleaning". they sedate and power float and clean sheathes...... As I recall about $150/horse. THey share the farm call cost.

If you'd live closer I'd bet you $10 he wouldn't be able to do mine without the sedation.

You would have a bet....I have been amazed by him. I always had my guys sedated until I moved them to NY.

Headed your way tomorrow......
