The mouth plays a very important role in a horse's overall health.
If you suspect your horse is having a dental problem, contact your veterinarian for help.

Some common signs of dental problems are: decreased appetite, becoming head shy, undigested feed in the feces, foul breath, reddened or inflamed gums and reacting negatively to a bit.

Lack of dental care can lead to number of problems including: colic, weight loss and issues under saddle.

Your veterinarian should examine your horse's teeth every six months to a year.
Horses that are young, elderly or have a history of dental problems may need their teeth checked more frequently
