Dental Problems

Learning to recognize signs of a dental problem is one of the keys to keeping your horse healthy. Treating the problem and maintaining healthy teeth is a critical element in your horse's overall well being. Horses with dental problems may show obvious signs, such as pain or irritation, or they may show no noticeable signs at all. This is because some horses simply adapt to their discomfort. For this reason, periodic dental examinations are essential to your horse’s health. It is important to catch dental problems early. If a horse starts behaving abnormally, dental problems should be considered as a potential cause. On the web site you will learn 5 key signs that your horse has a dental problem.

Vaccination Programs A systematic vaccination program is critical in maximizing your horses' health and protecting them from diseases like West Nile Virus. You will find AAEP’s recommended vaccination schedule for horses at vaccinations.

Evaluate Your Horse's Health the basic parameters for evaluating a horse's health are temperature, pulse rate, and respiration (TPR). Your horse's temperature is easy to evaluate and one of the best indicators of your horse’s health. The pulse and respiratory rates are equally easy to evaluate. Knowing your horse’s base rate for each area helps you evaluate your horse's condition and know when you have a problem. To learn how to evaluate these key indicators check out the Know Your Horse page on our website. //This should take them to the knowledge tool.// TPR

Determining Your Horse's AgeThe long-standing practice of studying horses’ teeth is still used today to determine a horse's age. By custom, performance horses age one year each January 1st. therefore, a November foal and a foal born the previous February are both yearlings on January 1st. The teeth of various breeds of horses develop differently. Environmental conditions and feeds also influence the development and wear of a horse's teeth. When we consider all of these factors it is easy to understand why telling the age of a horse by looking at its teeth is as much as an art as a science. In the Know Your Horse page under How Horses Teeth Develop you will find a chart of Equine Tooth Development. //This should be linked to the Knowledge Tool.//
