HORSE EMERGENCY? Call: 515-729-8387

Equine Dentistry

No two horses are the same, but they do all share a commonality. They need to visit the 'dentist' on a yearly basis. 


Unlike humans, your horses teeth continually grow. Furthermore, the circular motion that horses chew causes grinding on their teeth, which consequently can cause sharp points or hooks. Symptoms such as dropping food or mouth discomfort could be signs your horse needs to visit the vet. It is recommended to have a yearly dental exam to determine the condition of their teeth.


Dr. Dixon Appel specializes in numerous corrective dentistry treatments including floating, creating bit seats, wolf teeth removal, incisor realignment, minor extractions and more. If your horse is experiencing symptoms of mouth discomfort or it is time for their annual exam, please call our office today at 515-981-0082 to set up an appointment.
