Exclamation Teeth floating and temptrement change

Hi guys, Just wanted to ruin something past all of you that I am concerned about.

Yesterday I got my boys teeth floated. I got them looked at because he was dropping wieght depsite being in a paddock full of healthy grass and being fed lucerne twice a day, chaff and mill run with his nightly feed. He is an OTT and although I expoected some wieght drop I didnt expect him to look poorly. I noticed that he was a very messy eater also. So hence the decision to get a dentist out asap. In additon to this he is up to dsate with worming , his feet have been trimmed correctly and are well on their way to a healthy state and his strangles and tetnus are also up to date.

The dentist said that his teeth were shocking - that they looked like they had not been tended to in approx 2 yrs. One side was worn down quite a bit and the other was just too high for him to be chewing correctly at all, Let alone him being raced like they did(previous owner). He is only turning 6 this year and my concern was that he was not getting enough suppliments and feed to carry him through- boy was I wrong. The dentist and vet advised me that he was getting fed the correct amount and although she would change what I was feeding him out of personal preference more then anything he will be fine- this was agreed by the dentist too.

My question is: will his gentle nature and willing frame of mind change after this lil dentist trip ? And if so why ?
Cheers in advance.

Nope, it shouldnt if anything you are going to make him feel better. Taking away the pain in his mouth

I bet those bad teeth gave him a headache lol. So I would say, if nothing else, he will be happier and he might have a little more spring in his step.

Well, you might notice the fitter he gets the more "active". The TBs I rehabbed tended to get a lil hotter as they gain condition but YMMV

Went out to my overgrown furry wanna be pharlap and well already the change in him is 'beautiful'. He seems more content with attention around his head - not that it was a problem before but its like he is just so happy to have people near him, he does have a lil spring in his step and his food isnt all over the ground now :) his appitite has increased already and his eagerness to get out and see the world and do ''things' astounds me. What a great result even after one day......o lord - god I love him - I was able to help him and best of all I was able to understand what he was telling me :) **** PROUD MUMMY MOMENT**** thank you guys
