    I would say princess is right on schedule. At around two and a half years they begin shedding teeth and the process continues for the next two and a half years. You saw one cap that came out but...

    These types are spreading their misguided methodology to the uninitiated through dvds and lectures and the worst have even opened schools. By brainwashing their "students" they create carriers to...

    No I haven't but then I also don't have nails driven into my feet when I get new shoes or have my hair pulled out when I need a fresh hair style.?

    Since most can be removed without sedation, you attempt the removal and expect that all will go well. If it becomes obvious that plan A is not it working, you go to plan B.

    The best time to remove wolf teeth is when the horse is shedding the second premolar caps at two and a half years of age. Shedding the premolars will often aid in loosening the wolf teeth and allow...

    The idea of beveling the second premolars (06) in order to reduce ulcerations to the surronding mucosa due to bit interaction has been around since I learned to float teeth in the early eighties. ...

    I was remarking with regards to the two documents you linked to. I made no reference to you.





    Not at all. I'm saying don't fall for every new theory that comes along. Just because it...

    Clap Trap is definied as - pompous or pretentious talk or writing. In other words big, empty words. Both links contain the term equilibrate which is a buzzword for incisor adjustments to attain...

    Let me guess, this expert uses power tools in the mouth?!
    It is understood that temperature spikes of 5 degrees kill teeth. The part that hasn't been well studied is under what circumstances...

    What could have been done early on to treat the problem? If the open tubule travels to the root how on earth could the entire length of it be sterilized prior to filling? No vet would have pulled...

    Was the horse quidding before the float? It is very unusual for any horse other than a old timer to quid. Youngsters sometimes will due to the shedding process. I've seen a middle aged horse quid...

    Sure sounds like quidding. You don't need a boatload of tools and bright lights to figure that out. You surely shouldn't be routinely sedating geriatrics to simply assess their old teeth. It is...

    All floats are not created equal...maybe you should consider a second opinion on whether her teeth were well floated.

    Once a chain, two people and a whip where used there was zero chance things would turn out well. It's hard to imagine any competent dentist would allow things to degenerate to that point. I find...

    I would guess the cracks at the corners of her lips have more to do with chapping than any particular bit's action within her mouth.
    There are many possible causing of chapping but lots of saliva...

    It is difficult but not impossible. I'm sure it would feel impossible if floating teeth was only one of the many hats a busy equine practitioner had to wear. Horses are capable of more than he...

    Wave mouths are simple to detect when palpated. Many horses mouths have the characteristics of a wave mouth, but not to the degree that they are considered a malocclusion. Visual inspections are...

    Geldings canine teeth are usually larger and have a long, hooked root. If the tooth is health it would be difficult and pointless to remove.

    Old timers say, " a mare with canines is a hard mare to get in foal and the larger the teeth the tougher it will be to get her pregnant."

    Unlike a gelding's canines mare's are often poorly...
