This beautiful mare is named Ditsheo, meaning ‘smile’ in Xhosa – the language spoken in Lesotho, southern Africa. Like all equids, dental care plays an important part in this horse’s overall health. If her teeth become overgrown, she will struggle to grind food and extract essential nutrients, and may face painful wounds to the inside of her mouth which can lead to malnutrition. SPANA vets are skilled in dental care and are expertly trained to rasp teeth back to a healthy length. Teeth rasping provides instant relief for these hardworking animals, meaning horses like Ditsheo can finally enjoy a normal meal.
