Horse mouthReferral Dentistry

We are happy to assist you by offering both conservative treatment options and oral extraction of equine teeth. Conservative treatments of problems such as cavities and diastemas have been an evolving part of equine medicine to prevent removal of the tooth, and we are happy to assist you with these options. When necessary an extraction of a tooth can also be performed, and often times these horses can be sent home on the same day. If extraction is not an option we can refer the horse to our surgical service for repulsion of the tooth. Call (970) 297-5000 for questions or to make an appointment.

Referral Radiography

We are fully equipped with portable digital radiograph units and are happy to assist you in the field with capturing images of regions of interest. We are capable of capturing images of the head, neck, and limbs. We can provide these images on a thumb drive or e-mail on site and if interested we can submit them to our radiologists in the hospital for further interpretation.
