    Every 6 month, and no powertools for us thanks. Just my trusted vet.:D
  4. Our rescues get done as needed (eg Vee got done once, then 4 months later, now due in 6 months), my own horse is annually as his teeth have always been well looked after, youngsters I'd get looked at every 6 months particularly as they lose their caps and oldies, say 15 plus I have looked at every 16 months.

    I have mine done once a year by a horse dentist that uses a gag & torch to properly deal with things. For the fist year & a half of having my TB he got done every 6-8 months, then the dentist said he only needs to be done once a year. I get a written explination of everything, including missing teeth, burrs etc etc. This goes straight into their folder where all their worming records & vet records are kept. If the dentist says that any of mine need to be done more regularly then I will do what he reccommends.
