    My horse needs his teeth done. The vet that is coming out tomorrow can only do two horses at a time. There are over 10 horses at the barn that need to be floated.

    Also, after what happened last year when I had a vet float my boys teeth. I would honestly prefer an actual equine dentist. No power floats.

    Does anyone out there know a equine dentist that will come out to North Central MA? Up near NH? For that many horses? I dont know about the others but my boy doesnt even need to be sedated.
    I used Gary Saccocia Sr years ago when I had my mares and loved him. But am not sure if he will come this far north. Larry Cobb has been unreliable in the past. Ideas? Recommendations?

    Thanks in advance

    I know Vermont has a Veterinary Association, and I would assume Mass. does as well. Could you call them for recommendations?
    Sorry I can't be more helpful...those I do know of wouldn't travel that far either.

    i would recommend dougie raucher, but he uses power tools if he thinks it's necessary. if the teeth aren't that bad he'll just maintain them with a regular old floating.
