Dental care is an important part of keeping a horse healthy and happy throughout his life. Tooth problems can lead to pain-related training and behavioral issues, cause infection, and make it difficult for hard-keeping horses to gain and maintain weight. Work with your veterinarian to create an individualized dental care plan that works for your horse.
