Preventive dental care is an essential part of equine health management. Poor dental health can lead to colic, weight loss and other health issues that can interfere with your horse's performance.
Through regular check ups, horse owners can prevent minor oral health problems from becoming serious conditions that require emergency care.
Field Service or Clinical Service available.
