Equine Dentistry

What You Need to Know

Dental health is directly correlated to your horse’s overall wellness. A dental issue can be a sign that there may be something more serious going on. If your horse exhibits signs of an oral health problem, it is important that you contact Dr. Estrada right away to ensure that your horse stays healthy.

Symptoms of dental or oral health problems include:

  • Difficulty chewing
  • Excessive salivation
  • Weight loss
  • Digestion issues
  • Bad breath
  • Nasal discharge
  • Refusal to take the bit
  • Dropping feed

Oral exams can be completed during your horse’s yearly physical exam.

Be sure to report any health concerns to your veterinarian so that they can monitor for any abnormalities.
