    Default Equine Dentist

    Hello all

    Just want to get the mares teeth looked at. I got a recommendation for someone off another board for a man called Brian Cunnan but I'm wondering if this is the same person as Brian Coonan?

    Is there a National association or register for Equine Dentists?

    I haven't heard of Brian Cunnan. There are a few old threads on equine dentists - might be worth trawling through for recommendations.

    I would imagine it's Brian Coonan - he's very good with the horses, I've seen him extract a wolf tooth from a nervous mare with no fuss and no sedation, took bit of time but the mare was not in the least bothered.

    Where about are you, Gemma Murdock is in Ballyclare and travels around, she seems to have a good reputation.

    We had Caroline Perkins last time, she's excellent and a vet to boot so no extra fees if you need sedation, but she's been off on maternity, hope she's ready to go soon as we are due our annual check. She's also in the North.

    Sorry, just noticed your other post, see you're in Dublin. Welcome.

    I'm in Dublin/North Wicklow (hoss)

    Rang Brian Coonan/Cunnan and he is not too enthused to come out to one horse

    Understandable as he may be very busy.

    Any recommemdations for someone who would be happy to come out to Stepaside?

    Any one got the number for Marc Higgings or Shay Daly?, what area does he normally cover?

    Cheery bob.

    Niamh Martin would pobably go to Stepaside and see one horse. Brian Coonan is exceptional but you would have to bring your horse to a friendly yard to be treated in a group he's just too busy. Niamh is very well trained and lovely she is talented too.

    Will PM you Tharg
    My lovely horse, running through the fields.
    Where are you going with your fetlocks blowing in the wind?
    I want to shower you with sugar lumps and ride you over fences.
    Polish your hooves every single day, and bring you to the horse dentist...

    Oh yeah used him too, he's very good when you can get hold of him. Adrian Sutherland is very good as well when you catch him.

    Tharg - a word of advice here is to check out the qualifications of whatever equine dentist you are planning on using while some may appear to be very well trained I know for certain that they are only trained to do the basics based on a six week training course in the US! Will pm you our dentists number.

    The only course available currently that is recognised by Royal college of Veterinary Surgeons is the course run by the British Association of Equine Dental Technicians. The BAEDT work in conjunction with the British Equestrian Veterinary Association and the Royal Veterinary College to train, examin and certify EDTs.

    You'll find a list here: http://www.beva.org.uk/taxonomy/term/100 of currently certified EDTs
