In celebration of National Pet Day we bring to you photos of Dr. Swenson’s horse getting its teeth cleaned.
Did you know that horses require yearly dental exams with an equine dentist due to their unique teeth structure? We didn’t either until Dr. Swenson told us!
This annual check-up for horses ensures they don’t have any complications with their gums or tartar buildup.
As herbivores, the food horses eat creates an alkaline environment in their mouth and their teeth have little space for widespread decay. So, while you can remove tartar from your horse’s teeth between appointments, brushing their teeth is not necessary.
When it comes to a pet horse, it’s crucial to follow a equine dentist’s instructions since horses’ teeth don’t keep growing forever, and older horses can experience tooth loss and decay if their teeth aren’t properly cared for.
It doesn’t matter if you are an animal or human. Teeth require special care!
