Talking Tooth fairy visit!

Thought you peeps might wanna see a few pics of my boys being visited by the tooth fairy, well not quite haha. They all kept their teeth but had a good floating!
Rained all day but I was working anyway. The horses dentist came out and my mum took pics. Apparently Kai was a jerk and was rearing and being naughty and of course mum was freaking out and didn't take awesome pics of that. The horse dentist is a really nice guy and is sooo patient with Kai and just let him have his spaz attack then floated his teeth no dramas haha. Com was perfect and mum said took less than ten minutes. Spider not a happy camper but he wasn't too bad. So here is a link to the pics if you wanna see, not too exciting...

I like a dentist who can do the job without sedation and without the drills. Too sensative for that stuff. My Dentist does the same as yours.

great pics hehe.

Humans are like Slinkies. Practically useless, but still fun to push down the stairs.

Don't they need to be done? I mean most horses at least. What kind of problems ensue when their teeth are neglected?

Very impressed! Just had the vet out this week to float my horse's teeth. Because of Walka's special needs (he was born with rye's nose and his front teeth are a real jigsaw puzzle) they use the power tool. So he has to be sedated.

Thinking of trying an equine dentist though. Don't like having to sedate every year.

The thing that I like about the drills is that my boy had some very sharp teeth in the very back of his mouth, that couldn't have been reached with a regular file.

Kiki: It really depends on your area. My vet does it for $45. While some other people have to pay around $170. Just call your vet and ask if they do it and for how much.

Whipple: Yes for most horses they do need to be done. It can result in dropping feed, weight loss, ulcers in their mouth, moodiness, and it can cause your horse not to take the bit due to pain. The horses teeth can get very sharp and uncomfortable if they aren't floated.
