Reducing sharp edges is only part of a routine dental treatment….

First of all a good oral examination during which the complete mouth and all teeth are examined. After removing sharp enamel points the occlusal surface is equilibrated to make sure pressure is evenly devided over molars and also incisors…

Make sure to have an equine dental vet that is specialized in this field to check your horse annually!!!Oral health is so important for your equine friend's overall well-being and we always recommend you have your veterinarian check your horse’s teeth at least once a year.

Why? Here is one of the many reasons, straight from the mouth of the horse doctors at @nebraskaequine:

“Sharp points can form in your horse's mouth and create ulcers. Oral ulcers may present as dropping feed, reluctance to eat or decreased appetite, and/or resistance to the bit. Most oral ulcers heal very quickly after a good float and don't tend to cause future issues!”

Working Area

The working area of EDVC is mainly located around the dental clinic in Oud-Turnhout, Belgium and the province of Noord-Brabant in the Netherlands. Theo also regularly works in the Aachen-Cologne-Bonn region in Germany and in the Rotterdam-Amsterdam-Utrecht region in the Netherlands. Further ambulatory visits can be planned when more horses can be treated at the same location. Appointments can also always be scheduled at the equine clinics in the Netherlands and Germany with which EDVC works together.

If you have horses that need to be examined and/or treated outside of the general working area, please feel still free to contact us. Theo is fluent in Dutch, English, German and Spanish, loves adventure and travelling and is always willing to assist with any special queries you may have.

Appointments

Theo can be reached between 08 and 10 o’clock in the morning and between 18 and 20 in the evening (Central Europe Time). When busy treating horses, phone calls are usually ignored. Missed calls will always be responded to at a later time. Due to the high volume of appointments, please be kindly advised that it may take 2 to 4 weeks to schedule an appointment at your location for routine dental work. In case of ‘emergencies’ please note that there is always time at the EDVC dental clinic in Oud-Turnhout, Belgium.
