Dr. Pastrana does oral exams, dental power floating, and basic extractions. We can perform dental X-rays in the field as well to examine tooth roots and sinuses. We recommend yearly oral exams in order to prevent large points and hooks which cause discomfort and to check for loose or fractured teeth.
We recommend a 6 way in the Spring (EEE/WEE/WNV/EHV/Flu/Tetanus) and Rhino/Flu and Rabies in the Fall. We can also manage pregnancy vaccines for your broodmare to reduce the risk of abortion.
