The dentist said to use a mouth wash for our mare containing chloraheximine. Do I have to find an proprietary equine one or can i use human corsodyl as I am having trouble finding Hexarinse or its equiivalent. Thanks for any advice.
My Equine dentist told me to use weak diluted Listerine. The cool mint one.
I have 2 mares with diastema, one far worse than the other. For another reason I started using Turmeric, Black Pepper and Olive oil. The last time my dentist was so pleased with their mouths. I still wash their mouth out twice a day though.
If your horse will allow you to do it ,try using a hose pipe running slowly to help clean the mouth.
Thanks for that tip, the pepper concoction sounds interesting. we have a 'moody mare' and will try all tips to see what she will accept. As we dont have close access to hose, will a water bottle cleaning experiment too.
Funnily enough, no. As it was my EDT who suggested the dilute Hibiscrub to me, I trust that she speaks from experience. Afterall, Hibiscrub does contain chloraheximine like all the other suggestions above.
