The vet was at the barn today to do fall shots. While he was there, the vet checked his teeth. I just got the following text from the BM:
"Quest got his teeth done today they were super bad he said not to ride today or tomorrow and that when you do ride him he may be a little tender"
My question is this: if he just got his teeth done in the spring, does it make sense for his teeth to be "super bad"?
He's 5 years old and in light work. He doesn't show any typical signs of mouth discomfort. He doesn't drop feed, avoid the bit, resist being bridled, etc. This is the same vet who did him in the spring. At that time, the BM told me his teeth were in bad shape and he pulled a wolf tooth. Almost exactly a year before that, I lived father away and the vet in that area did his teeth while I was there. She pulled both wolf teeth and a couple of caps and said his teeth were normal compared to other horses his age.
The differences between then with that vet and now with this vet are night and day. I watched the first vet pull his wolf teeth. Then, the other vet said he pulled a wolf tooth? I thought horses only had 2.
I guess I just want to know if this whole situation makes sense.
