An equine dentist specializes in the oral health of horses. Specialized tools are used to conduct procedures such as floating, bit seat creation, incisor realignment, wave and hook correction and tooth extraction. They also treat horses with contagious oral diseases.
Equine Massage Therapy
Equine Massage Therapy uses a variety of massage techniques and strokes to stimulate blood flow to different areas of the body. This encourages blood flow and brings in oxygen and other nutrients, at the same time removing lactic acid build up and eliminating other metabolic waste from the body. This encourages injured muscles to heal, and healthy muscles to stay flexible and pain free.

The AmRisk Farrier Insurance policy is designed to respond to the specific needs of a professional farrier. Legal cases and lawsuits are more prevalent as technology, and information increases to identify the cause of laminitis, lameness, improper hoof angles and/or using pads improperly, more horse owners are likely to point the finger at the farrier when things go wrong. This plan gives you the ability to buy broad property and liability coverage at preferred rates.
Equine Thermal Therapy
Thermal therapies, each through different methods, limit tissue damage and improve or speed up healing. The goal is to restore the affected area to full function. The application of cold or cryo-therapy is the most common and the most effective if used in the acute phase, post injury or surgery. Heat therapy increases the metabolic activity in cells, which leads to locally increased demand for oxygen, and subsequent induced capillary dilation.
