Meet Dr. Horbal


Equine dentistry is one of the most important yet often overlooked or incorrectly performed health practices we can provide for our horses.


Airway Investigation

The teeth are very closely connected to the horse’s airways, and we are equipped to properly investigate many different symptoms.


Dynamic Endoscopy

A Dynamic Endoscope allows veterinarians to see the airway and how it is functioning while the horse is at work.
