Care of Your Horse's Mouth


Does your horse:

  • Have performance problems? Lug in or out? Get "behind" or "over" the bit?

  • Balk, refuse to turn or back, display reluctance in collecting?

  • Eat with little enthusiasm, have trouble maintaining weight, have a dull coat?

  • Have repeated bouts with colic?

  • Dribble grain from its mouth, quid, or dunk hay and grain in water?

  • Have foul breath, nasal discharge, or bleeding from the mouth?

  • Have eccentric eating behaviors?

  • Show reluctance to the bit? Is he/she head-shy?

  • Fail to gain weight despite increases in grain?

  • Froth or salivate excessively?


Any of these symptoms could mean your horse's mouth has a problem. Contact your vet or an Equine Dental Technician, and have him take a look in your horse's mouth to diagnose the problem.
