Fox Woods Equine is focused on dentistry as a part of wellness care and preventative medicine in horses. Your horse's dental care is an integral part in his overall well being. Regular dental examinations and maintenance on their teeth is especially necessary for today's horses, providing them with a longer and more comfortable future. Regular proper dental care enables your horse to utilize feed more efficiently, maintain proper body weight and carry a bit more comfortably when bridled. Many performance issues can be addressed through a thorough and complete dental exam and dental balancing.
Fox Woods Equine utilizes the most advanced motorized equine dental instruments that enable us to provide your horse with the highest level of dental care. A dental head stand support system is utilized to provide comfort and minimal stress to the horse and client. In cases where dental abnormalities are identified, we are able to further assess the problem with digital radiology on the farm.
