    Question when to do they're teeth????

    Hi I was wondering when I should have 2 horse's teeth floated? Im not sure when the last time either of them had it done. Neither one of they'rew pervious owner mentioned it when I bought. I think im going to get in touch and maybe ask when the last they had them done was

    I believe it's usually once a year, but It also depends on the horse, some can go longer than others.
    I would call the previous owner and ask when they had them done. Or if your worried about it have the vet check next time they come out.

    It's a good thing to have them checked on their yearly vet checks; the only time I've done it any sooner is if the vet said that particular horse needed his/her teeth done more often.

    My horses are checked every year by my vet and floated as needed. I have one that needs it every year, and the other three are good every other year. As a horse gets older, they may need more frequent dental care, every 6-12 months.

    Hi,

    Yeah, once a year's a good average to work on. Depends what your horse's diets are & whether they wear a bit too. When under 5yo my boy was on an 8 month schedule, as per dentist's advice. He's now on a 16-24 month sched, but my pony's been on an 8 month schedule too, as his teeth were neglected & terrible when I got him. Should be right to go at least a year now though, according to dentist. My old boy who got put down 2 years ago was on a 6 month schedule from the time he was about 28yo, because his jaw went a bit awol.
