Welcome to Rachel Hough
Equine Dental Technician

Equine dentistry has evolved considerably and is now considered a necessity to equine health. Regular (6-12 monthly) dental checks are important to ensure a comfortable and correctly working equine mouth.

The removal of sharp points to the lingual and buccal edges of the cheek teeth, and any Hooks, ramps, waves and step mouths ensure your horse’s teeth are working properly and not causing any discomfort or restriction in the movement, and chewing capability of the mouth.

This helps to achieve contented horses that are happy in their work, whether that is for competition, hacking, broodmare or just out at grass.

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with your requirements or any concerns. Rachel is always happy to help!

Rachel worked with my youngster the first time he had his teeth done!

She was calm, gentle and taught him to enjoy having his teeth done.

I would DEFINATELY recommend Rachel as you will not be disappointed!

Horse Welfare….

Recent studies have found that up to 70% of horses have undiagnosed dental problems. This is a real welfare concern for our horses as dental problems can seriously deteriorate unseen until the horse shows clinical signs.

Horses are stoic animals, which mean they can endure pain for long periods of time without showing signs, especially with pain related to teeth! Due to this, many horse owners don’t realise that their horses could be suffering in silence.


It’s All About Prevention…

IWe recommend dental checks every 6-12 months to ensure any unidentified issues are treated as quickly as possible. This recommendation will vary for older horses or those that have specific abnormalities.

Many modern dental treatments are only possible if problems are identified before they become advanced. Just as in humans, early intervention is better than dealing with a dental catastrophe. 




Regular Dentistry Helps..

* Improve horse health and comfort and helps maintain ideal weight

* Improves horse performance

* Improves feed efficiency with a reduction in feed costs

*Reduce or eliminate behaviours such as resisting the bit, rearing and head shaking.

* Help prevent tooth loss and other dental problems in older age – horses are living longer – they need good teeth
