Why do horses require dental treatment?
Horses possess Hypsodont teeth which are teeth that continually erupt through the horse's life until their mid to late 20's. Since horses have become domesticated and their natural vegetation removed the rate of wear and the action of the teeth in chewing their food has thereby altered. Such changes have resulted in alterations to the horses wear pattern of its teeth. It should also be remembered that the life expectancy of a wild horse is generally considerably less than that of a domesticated horse. In consideration of these factors, combined with our desire for improved performance of the domesticated horse, regular dental maintenance is a necessity that should not be overlooked.

The following are common indications of dental problems
-Reluctance to work in outline

Web Marketing For Horse Dentists
Equestrian marketing for horse dentists has made Yellow Pages obsolete as the internet has replaced directories as the major search tool. All it requires is a little education on your part to put yourself ahead of your local competitor`s
Most horse dentists who work in a local market have a few misconceptions about internet marketing, particularly YouTube marketing for dentists and business professionals as well as search engine optimization:
They are unaware of the opportunities of the internet and of horse dental video marketing to enhance their customer base.
They believe that the “worldwide” web won’t be effective for their “local” efforts.
They think that dental internet marketing is confined to the time-consuming tediousness of updating multiple social media accounts provided by sites such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.
Most importantly, equine dentists do not realize when it comes to YouTube marketing for dentists and other professionals, that their videos have to be distributed to hundreds, even thousands, of authority websites that get a huge amount of traffic.
