Sandie's dentist appointment

This was the first time I'd ever witnessed them actually floating her teeth (or any horse's for that matter) and she went out like a light when they tranq'd her! The equine dentist was awesome, and very informative...and of course I couldn't help myself and did laugh when her droopy head fell sideways at the end of the first video!!!

I knew she was fine or I wouldn't have thought it was so hilarious, but I've never seen her this goofy, it was like she was drunk! Poor girl!



An hour later she was back to normal and grazing outside

Haha in the beginning of the first one I laughed when her tongue rolled out the side of her mouth!

somewhere behind the rider you've become the hours of practice you've put in & the coaches that have pushed you is the little girl who fell in love with the sport and never looked back. ride for her.

You are lucky nothing happened. I am so opposed to this new style. Speculums have done so much damage to the jaw and tmj and power floats if not used correctly can destroy a mouth.

did you ever think this is someone experienced doing it? not just a regular joe? ive been looking at your posts and all youre doing is pulling up OLD threads and telling everyone how they SHOULD be getting their horses teeth done..... i think thats enough.

Experienced or not does not change the fact that speculums have caused damage to horses. The use of sedation and speculums is unnessary in floating a horses teeth, and all im simply trying to do is to get horse owners to see that this "advanced" dentistry is nothing but a money earner for the provider. I am stating my opinion (which im allowed to do) and just trying to help horse owners that might not know... So no its not enough and I will continue to talk about something that i am passionate about.

I have never heard anything like this How does it cause damage? How often does something like that happen? I didn't even know there WAS any other way to float a horse's teeth...
