Teeth Floating..

I was just wondering how much it costs to float a horses teeth and how to tell if that's what they need or not. My 12 yr old Palomino used to be pretty fat and now he is tiny and has ribs showing. Just wondering if that is what was needed..

Thanks yall

Getting his teeth looked at would be a good place to start, as well as having a vet out to rule out any disease.

Getting a horse's teeth floated varies on the horse the severity of the teeth and the vet or dentist.

A vet will check your horses teeth for sharp edges, uneven wear, his mouth in general, etc. They would be a very good place to start. I had Diesels done a few years ago (and have them checked once a year) he had some hooks removed, bit rests put in, some filing and anesthesia. It ran me like 150. Like appy said, it depends on what they need to do and the vet/area.

It would only go up that high if you needed to have some sort of invasive dental surgery or something.
