EQUINE DENTAL CLINIC AT NEWTON FARM
Saturday 6th September 9am - 1pm
Regular dental care is very important to good horse management. All of the vets at Damory Veterinary Clinic carry equipment to allow us to safely examine your horse’s mouth and to perform routine dental work. We can also use sedative drugs if necessary to make the work less stressful for nervous horses. Some horses may have large overgrowths, which we can tackle using motorised equipment quickly and efficiently to minimise the distress caused to the horse.
The signs associated with dental disease can include quidding (dropping food), taking longer to eat, packing food in the cheeks, weight loss, a dull coat, bitting problems and head shaking. However, many horses cope very well with dental pain and outwardly may show no signs of a problem. It is therefore very important to have your horse’s teeth checked regularly.
We are holding a dental clinic at our Equine Clinic at Newton Farm, Sturminster Marshall on Saturday 6th September. We will have all of the equipment available to allow us to perform routine and remedial work as necessary and we are happy to carry out and discuss other routine veterinary care such as vaccination and worming at this time.
Places are limited so if you are interested in booking your horse in for the clinic then please contact the practice on 01258 452626 and speak to one of our equine team.
