Working with horses throughout Devon and Cornwall, Penbode Equine Dentistry provides a caring service, committed to making the 'dentist experience' stress free for your horse. Our experienced Equine Dental Clinicians are 'horse people' with horses of their own and are also fully qualified equine vets. This enables us to legally perform all procedures categorised by the British Equine Veterinary Association (BEVA) and British Association of Equine Dental Technicians (BAEDT) including removing wolf teeth with pain relief.
A regular dentist teeth check is extremely important for dental health. This applies as much to your horse as it does to you. Penbode Equine Dentistry provides a fully mobile complete horse dental care service in Devon and Cornwall. Our Equine Dental Clinicians are also experienced equine vets, who maintain high standards for your horse by regularly attending British Equine Veterinary Association (BEVA) / British Association of Equine Dental Technicians (BAEDT) approved courses. Legal, pain free removal of wolf teeth is one of the many BEVA / BAEDT categorised procedures that we routinely perform on the horse, when appropriate.
Our Equine Dental Clinicians are 'horse people' who have owned and ridden horses. We provide a caring, sympathetic approach to equine dentistry and all aspects of the horse. As horse vets we are in the unique position of being able to provide complete health care for your horse. Most equine dentistry procedures can be performed in your horse's stable and we treat horses throughout Devon and Cornwall. If needed your horse can benefit from our fully equipped equine clinic based at Holsworthy, Devon. If follow up medicines are required these can be easily and legally prescribed and collected from one of our offices throughout Devon and Cornwall (Bude, Camelford, Bradworthy, Holsworthy, Okehampton).
Whether a competition horse or a much loved equine companion, all members of the horse family will benefit from a dentist teeth check. Penbode Equine Dentistry, provides a caring, professional, horse service throughout Devon and Cornwall. Our interest in equine dentistry pre dates our veterinary careers. As horse owners, all the Equine Dental Clinicians at Penbode Equine Dentistry are acutely aware of the benefit of regular dentist care. As riders we have experienced the difference that a healthy and balanced horse's mouth can make to head carriage, avoiding horse resistance to the bit. Horse dental problems can result in difficulty to eat, pain and horse weight loss. Older horses can develop gaps (diastemata) between teeth into which food can become trapped resulting in pain, gum disease and infections of the roots of teeth which can lead to sinusitis. Our Equine Dental Clinicians are also experienced equine vets, based in Devon and Cornwall, who have received extensive British Equine Veterinary Association (BEVA) / British Association of Equine Dental Technicians (BAEDT) training and experience in equine dentistry, through BEVA / BAEDT courses. As 'horse people' we understand the importance of a quiet and sympathetic approach from the dentist. Being qualified equine vets gives Penbode Equine Dentistry the additional bonus of being able to sedate horses when required and to legally perform all procedures categorised by BEVA / BAEDT such as wolf teeth and cheek teeth extractions and infection of the roots of horse teeth, in a safe and stress free manner with the aid of pain relief and antibiotics. With the help of high quality portable digital radiography (X-ray) equipment, dental X- rays can be taken anywhere in Devon and Cornwall to aid the diagnosis of conditions such as infection of the roots of horse teeth, fractures or sinusitis. A dentist examination is recommended at least once a year. Why not combine the dental visit for your horse with the annual equine influenza vaccination and take advantage of money saving offers?
