Description
  • Wolf teeth, when present, are found in the area in front of the first 'cheek' tooth and are normally located on the upper jaw (not to be confused with canine teeth or 'tushes' that are located further forward).
  • They do not always require removal but when they do, sedation (and patience!) is required.
  • Factors such as position, number, your horse's behaviour whilst ridden and age are used to make a judgment on whether to remove them or not. 

Diastema Flushing
£40 inc VAT

Description
  • Diastema (gaps) can form between teeth for various different reasons. 
  • They can lead to food packing which in turn can cause damage to the adjacent gum and teeth.
  • This damage can cause gum inflammation/pain and tooth decay.
  • Flushing of these gaps on a regular basis significantly reduces the associated gum inflammation and prevents further damage of the adjacent teeth.

Sedation

Description
  • The vast majority of our patients can be treated without sedation but there will always be particular individuals and some procedures where sedation is necessary for safety and welfare reasons.
  • We can provide a sedation service with our own veterinary surgeon, saving you the inconvenience of having to coordinate visits with another veterinary practice.
  • There is no additonal fee if repeat doses of drugs are required for a deeper level of sedation.
  • This service does need to be pre-arranged so please contact us if you wish to discuss sedation for your horse.
