My horse needs his teeth done every 9 - 12 months

1/20/2009 4:46:03 PM

1 of my horses has to be done 2-3 times per year.

1/20/2009 4:42:51 PM

One horse does fine with twice a year; the older one needs it more often now.

1/20/2009 4:38:21 PM

They are checked at least once a year and floated as recommended or needed. One is checked 2x a year

1/20/2009 4:36:38 PM

1/20/2009 4:34:21 PM

Only by equine dentist, not vet.

1/20/2009 4:31:50 PM

Every 6 mos. or as recommended by my equine dentist.

1/20/2009 4:31:44 PM

Sometimes more often if the dentist recommends it.

1/20/2009 4:27:23 PM

I have an equine dentist do it

Some horse's teeth grow quicker than others.

1/20/2009 4:23:10 PM

by an Equine Dentist

which might be once a year

1/20/2009 4:11:54 PM

2x a year - missing teeth, parrot mouthed

1/20/2009 4:11:35 PM

Or when I first buy a horse, to make sure any issues are not teeth related.

1/20/2009 4:11:23 PM

1/20/2009 4:09:22 PM

1/20/2009 4:04:50 PM

When needed- but it seems to be needed about once a year

1/20/2009 4:04:32 PM

or whenever it's needed if less than a year

1/20/2009 4:02:44 PM

AS needed but have them checked twice a year or if signs are showing that it may be needed

1/20/2009 4:00:45 PM

I have them checked every year by a Vet, but only get them done as needed. Seems to be every 2yrs.

1/20/2009 3:59:15 PM

depending on need and extent of dental problem

1/20/2009 3:57:06 PM

every couple of years or when needed

1/20/2009 3:56:14 PM

Every 9 months.

1/20/2009 3:54:22 PM

Really, as needed based on age, development, changes.

1/20/2009 3:50:54 PM

We have a couple of horses that need there teeth floated every 6 months

1/20/2009 3:48:47 PM

1x but more if needed

1/20/2009 3:48:10 PM

Checked every six months, so whatever is necessary gets done.

1/20/2009 3:45:52 PM

As recommended by the vet

1/20/2009 3:44:59 PM

or as advised by dentist

1/20/2009 3:43:58 PM

I leave it to the DVM. Some require twice a year; some once; some every other. Depends on the animal

1/20/2009 3:40:48 PM

Annually or as needed

1/20/2009 3:40:37 PM

or more often if needed

1/20/2009 3:39:08 PM

Have a 3-yr-old who needs caps popped off as they occur, and 25-yr-old who's checked twice/year.

1/20/2009 3:36:39 PM

Equine dentist, DVM performs dentistry on my horses; Cheaper 1x per yr than to wait for issues

1/20/2009 3:34:53 PM

I do my own floating so it's done as soon as needed

1/20/2009 3:33:52 PM

This is essential care for miniature horses.

1/20/2009 3:30:56 PM

When my horses go for their shots, I ask the vet to check their teeth and make appt. if needed

1/20/2009 3:28:18 PM

every 8 months now

1/20/2009 3:25:06 PM

but checked twice a year

1/20/2009 3:25:00 PM

The determination is made by the DVM.

1/20/2009 3:23:57 PM

I consider this necessary for the health and well-being of my older horse.

1/20/2009 3:21:24 PM

Dependent on the age. The older(10-12 yrs) the horse the less often it is needed.

1/20/2009 3:20:09 PM

unless older then 2 times a year

1/20/2009 3:07:38 PM

EVERY 3 YEARS or AS NEEDED

1/20/2009 3:07:06 PM

also check bit seat

1/20/2009 2:59:21 PM

Every other year. but the vet checks them yearly

1/20/2009 2:10:52 PM

Teeth are examined every six months & floated or other care as needed for the specific horse.

1/20/2009 12:07:07 PM

2x/yr. Missing incisors matter! If you think not, your horse will die a painful death: Bloat colic

1/20/2009 12:05:48 PM

check them twice a year and float as needed

1/20/2009 10:58:25 AM

Annually for broodmares, but any horse regularly wearing bits should be checked twice a year.

1/20/2009 10:17:31 AM

If needed, twice a year

1/20/2009 9:46:51 AM
