Thoroughbred Vets & Dentists

Thoroughbred vets and dentists are valued members of the horse racing community. They are professionals specialising specifically in the care of horses, which have individual needs – especially when kept as racing animals – requiring different care from most other animals.

Most established trainers have a fixed staff vet to take care of their charges, meaning the veterinarian establishes strong bonds and relationships with the animals schooling at the training stables. This can work to the runners’ advantage, as a vet can easier spot irregularities in the horses’ gait or behaviour if he or she is familiar with the animal.

While the idea of a specialised equine dentist may sound absurd, it is in fact a much respected and necessary profession. The expression: ‘Don’t look a gift horse in the mouth’ has not been coined without reason. If a thoroughbred’s teeth are not kept in good condition, it can be to the overall detriment of the animal’s health. Oral infections can quickly spread throughout a thoroughbred’s system, affecting the animal’s form negatively and occasionally even leading to illnesses which can cause the horse to be unable to race.

Meadows Veterinary Centre
Meadows Veterinary Centre has been providing equine care to all pleasure and performance horses throughout the Adelaide Hills and southern suburbs for over 24 years. For more than 20 of those years Dr Greg Rodda has pursued his special interest in Equine Dentistry initially training at the Colorado State Vet University and since has been involved in training other vets.

As only vets can administer and monitor sedatives and anaesthetics, use nerve blocks, treat infections, perform surgical procedures and take x-rays he can provide complete care and treatment. His tools cater for miniature ponies through to large performance horses and include a Power Float that was designed by and only available for use by veterinarians. This was done to prevent the tooth damage that has been seen in the past caused by other types of power floats used by lay dentists. He is able to quickly and safely remove large hooks and ramps to achieve a balanced mouth which also includes bit seating.
