Dentistry

  • All our vets carry a full mouth speculum, the latest motorised equipment and an extensive set of dental rasps.
  • All have had extensive further training in routine dentistry and have full back up and advise from Moses in the hospital and Joe who has passed the BAEDT/BEVA accredited dental technician exam and is working towards Advanced Practitioner Status in Equine Dentistry.
  • Simple dental extractions e.g. wolf teeth can be performed under standing sedation on the yard
  • We are unique in the area in being able to offer direct access to CT and other hospital facilities under the care of your own vet
  • In some cases, more advanced extractions and procedures (e.g. diastema treatment, radiography etc) can be performed at the yard. Please discuss these with the vet at your visit or ring us at the hospital.
