He is heading to England, so he might not be able to get to you for awhile. Just giving you a heads up. Jerry does my horses teeth and some of my clients. He is extremely busy, because he is so good, and a man of few words in email and on the phone, but he is exceptional in what he does. |
He recently was here (shelton, WA) to do my herd of 5, he has done them once before. Three of them did not need their teeth done, and he did not charge me for checking their teeth. Wow is that rare or what!
My old draft, 20+, had two fractured teeth, and it was kind of an emergency as he could not eat hay, I put him on grass pasture and soaked timothy/beet pulp until Jerry could get here. Im fortunate in that I live in the same state but he goes everywhere.
He did tell me that when a horse reaches the age of 15, there is less to do and if the horse is set up right, may not need much for dental work as they get older. Key words, "set up right". Years of incorrect dental work can be so detrimental to a horse, and Ive seen so much damage done mostly by vets. There just isnt the training and knowledge there that a good equine dentist has from the necessary training.
