Hawkedon Equine Dental Service » ROUTINE VISITS

Your horse deserves meticulous routine dental care to keep its mouth healthy and comfortable throughout it's life.

Richard offers routine visits to each horse once or twice a year, depending your horse's requirements and reminders are sent by post and sms when the next check up is due. Yard visits are scheduled so several horses can be seen on one visit. Visits are also arranged by area and clients can be grouped to try and keep the cost down for individuals or small yards.

Richard promotes good regular dentistry. With regular examinations he can attain and maintain a balanced, comfortable and functional mouth for the whole of your horse’s life He will identify and pick up problems and deal with them early on. This often prevents the necessity for extensive dental work and prevents painful and uncomfortable problems from developing.

Richard will require a clean, empty stable, and access to an electric supply and clean water. Routine dentistry requires a lot of equipment and enough time for every horse.

Where many horses are being seen Richard prefers to work in one clean stable.

These procedures are performed on routine visits:

  • Examinations
  • Rasping or floating of sharp edges of the cheek teeth
  • Corrections of all but the most severe malocclusions
  • Wolf tooth extractions
  • Deciduous tooth (cap) removal
  • Bit assessment and fitting
  • Treatment of bit sores

There is no additional mileage charge for five or more horses.

If you have fewer horses requiring dentistry then please tell our reception staff who will be more than happy to try and pool visits in an area to avoid high mileage fees.

Routine visits can be booked with the reception staff between 8.30am and 6pm weekdays on 01284 789428 or via email at reception@hawkeonvets.com or via the contact page
