    HH just debited me £145.20 from my account!

    Having just checked my bank account, I see Time Inc. UK Ltd have debited me £145. I had no idea who this was and Google told me they took over from IPC media so must be my HH subscription! Never has it been that price!! Is it right?!

    Odd bruising in mouth? Ideas?

    Hi there, so difficult to say without seeing but I am pretty sure this is trauma related either from chewing a rope and getting it stuck for a millisecond and then throwing her head up. This is quite low for butting trauma but is the kind of bruising I would expect to see from it. V doubtful it...

    experiences with (blind) wolf tooth?

    If the wolf tooth is blind it will have to be removed by a vet as it is deemed as a "surgical procedure" due to an incision having to be made to expose the tooth. I tend to be of a "if it aint broke dont fix it" but rarely do blind WT not cause a problem. Also, yes you can get lower WT, I...

    Equine dentist North Yorks

    Agree completely P - people need to understand that we do this on a daily basis 40-50 horses a week in my case and I certainly wouldnt use power instrumentation on unsedated horses if I didnt believe it was safe to do so. We as BAEDT EDTs are not stupid or human guinea pigs; our safety, the...

    Equine dentist North Yorks

    "power instrumentation" is incredibly broad spectrum and yes the exert you have refers to category 3 procedures such as pulp burring/capping and diastema widening etc and cannot be legallly performed by an EDT anyway regardless of whether it is sedated or not. However, power instrumentation...

    Wolf teeth?

    Im of the "if it aint broke dont fix it" opinion where WT are concerned! If the WT is "blind" (under the gum line) then always advise removal but with normally errupted WT I let the client know they are there, if they want them removed then arrange a re visit with the vet to sedate...

    A field spraying question....

    depends on the water/herbicide ratio. If too weak (but goes further so cheaper for farmer!) it may not be strong enough to kill some of the tough weeds and buttercups. I sprayed mine last wednesday (2 days ago) and everything is dying off pretty speedy! I used Relay P - its the only thing...

    Eating Wood

    If its uncharacteristic behaviour then its usually because their teeth are sharp or youngsters are trying to dislodge caps (baby teeth).

    Wolf Teeth Shock!

    My theory - if it aint broke dont fix it! Esp the case in older horses as the root of the WT tends to ossify to the alveolar socket making it v hard to remove and more likely to fracture

    Teeth checking !!!

    Sun shine, I have seen both and worked with both and agree I wouldnt dream of running motorised carbide or tungston discs/burrs unsedated, as they would cause soft tissue damage. The LeClair is diamond coated and is similar to plaster cast removing instruments at hospital; they cut through...

    Teeth checking !!!

    Its perfectly safe Sun shine - in the right hands. I quite happily run the power disc on the underside (more sensitive skin) of my arm and hold it there for 5 seconds, no mark or damage. The horses tolerate it a lot more as well, even the ones that freak out at clipper noise are quite happy...

    Dentist aged horse ?younger than expected

    Glenruby that applies to EDTs with no recognised qualifications - If BEVA/BVDA qualified (and WWAED) and a member of the BAEDT then they are allowed to perform Cat 2 procedures. Having said that I know about 90% of non qualified EDTs carry out cat 2 procedures regardless of legislation...
