The Importance of "Whole of Mouth" Equine Dentistry
By Ian Wharton MCEqD
This DVD is an informational guide to what you can expect from "Whole of Mouth" equine
dentistry and why it is totally important to have this type of dentistry done on your horse.
You will be shown why it is important to treat "ALL" of the horse's teeth, and to address the
malocclusions that invariably occur in today's pastured horses.
This is a DVD not to be missed by the discerning horse owner and trainer.
