Where I live there is no sedating, unless the horse panics enough to possibly injure the vet, me or himself. And last time I got it done I think it was about $25 ish?

Here it is around 75$ at the local vet & they do sedate. My other vet( the one I prefer) does not sedate and the cost is around 60$ but I have never had him do a float.

Many horses require sedation and that adds about $60 or so around here.

At the clinic I worked at it was $100 plus 25-30$ of required sedation. The place I get my guys teeth at is a manual float with no sedation for $25

Just got my mare's teeth floated today. They charged $35 dollars for manual (by hand) floatation and $10.00 for sedation because the mare had some pain issues that caused her to not want to give.

That's really inexpensive. I am an equine vet, and I wouldnt float for anything less then 100 and would only float with sedation......after you have your fingers bit a few times its not worth it. There is so much involved/physically demanding, that I actually have an equine veterinary dentist float my own horses.

I just had our 4 horses done with a power float and it cost me $557 dollars, including sedation and removing 2 wolf teeth on my three year old. I'm used to paying more like 100 dollars per horse (I've been doing it every year). With the raising costs of everything I'm going to have look into doing it every-other year.

As you can see, it really depends if it's a power float or not, but I have never ever heard of $15-20 for floating teeth!! I worked for an equine vet and it was minimum $100 for manual, plus the farm call fee and some sedation.

It's a very good idea to get it done though. Bad teeth can lead to so many heath, behavior, and training issues.
