Horse Dental Health – An Interview With a Horse Dental Specialist
By Ronnie Kellner
My Quarter horse, Chelsea, was losing weight. I increased her grains but she still continued losing. She had no symptoms of disease and showed no discomfort when chewing hay, although she was taking a little longer to eat it. So, I call my veterinarian, Dr. Heather Ross. She is a horse dental specialist.
Dr Ross arrives with her tool box. She washes this giant metal-syringe-like-tool. It is used only to clean out the mouth with water. Like with any dentist, I am apprehensive.
