It is recommend that horses have an oral examination performed bi-annually to both maintain dental occlusion and to diagnose and treat dental disease before more serious problems occur. To safely perform a thorough oral examination, sedation and an oral speculum restraint is recommended. Our doctors can perform dentistry (floating) either at our hospital or at your farm.
Dr. Autumn Gillespie and Dr. Linda Harmon are both certified in VSMT (Veterinary Spinal Manipulation Therapy) also known as chiropractics for our equine patients. VSMT can help with a variety issues such as being "cinchy", decline in performance, and much more.
