Lisa A. Grim, DVM, Inc.
We are a veterinary practice providing excellence in dentistry in North San Diego County, southern Orange and Riverside Counties. We know that the benefits of modern equine dentistry can increase the longevity of your horse, decrease feed bills and increase your overall enjoyment of your riding companion. Thus it is one of the most economical procedures to increase your horse's health. Painful dental conditions can make it difficult for horses to comfortably respond to the bit and many behavioral issues have been resolved with proper dentistry.
Most horse owners are aware that the equine mouth needs regular dental attention. Equine dentistry has advanced in the last 20 years and we now address the entire dental arcade. Smoothing sharp edges, reducing overgrowths and correcting malocclusions. Some of the possible problems initiated from improper dental care include: lacerations of the cheeks from sharp points on the teeth, indigestion problems, painful slow eating, weight-loss, being uncomfortable in the bridle creating behavioral issues, mal-occlusions, TMJ problems, fractured teeth, painful periodontal disease and premature loss of teeth.
"i love my equine Dentist!"
We have a 3-horse trailer that has been customized to a comfortable equine mobile dental clinic. The inside has a padded area for the horse to relax into the sedation while the procedures are performed. We have found that horses are less distracted and stand better in our clinic and therefore require less sedation. Our clinic is fully stocked with the latest dental equipment including digital radiography on site and equipment to perform fillings and extractions, when necessary. Thus we can do most procedures on site, the same day. For large groups we can also travel distances when prior arrangements are made
