Silver Creek Equine Services



  • Equine Dentistry

  • Horse teeth continue to grow throughout their lives, creating problem areas known as "points" and "waves." Years ago, these problems were corrected by smoothing the teeth with hand filing tools, an approach that is still occasionally practiced on horses with very minor issues. 

  • We offer both hand floating and motorized floating (far more common and comprehensive) depending on which is more appropriate for the horse's dental needs. Both procedures are usually performed under sedation.

  • Motorized dentistry is best performed at our haul-in facility, though can be performed at your home or barn. Stocks and fans add efficiency, lower the stress on the horse, and lower the cost of the procedure.

Unfortunately our emergency services are limited.

 Emergency calls received outside normal business hours will be screened and addressed on a priority basis.

Due to the increased demand for emergency services in our area, we have found that there is a necessity to develop an emergency policy to best serve our all of our clients and patients. Our goal is to provide the best service possible and continue to serve an excellent standard of care in the most timely manner, which requires a prioritization of our services.

  • Preference will be given to existing clients.

  • Each case will be evaluated individually, based on severity of symptoms and patient condition based on the description of symptoms/conditions provided.

  • Recommendations for immediate care will be provided if relevant or possible depending on owner ability and supplies. Please visit emergency kit recommendation.
