Because horses’ teeth grow continuously, the wear pattern of their mouth is constantly changing. Due to the shape of the equine jaw, horses will develop sharp points on their teeth that can cause ulcers to form on their cheeks. Some horses also develop ramps or hooks in their mouth that limit the mobility of the jaw, causing them to drop feed and potentially not break down food normally. These problems can lead to poor body condition, choke, and colic if not properly treated.
