Couple weeks ago I had the vet out for a farm call. Horses and goats were due for shots.
Horses also needed their teeth floated.
For all you non-horsey folk, floating means filing
(I have no idea why).
Big, long, metal rasp gets shoved in their mouth and scraped back and forth over their teeth while their mouth is held open with a speculum, which closely resembles some kind of horrific medieval torture device.
The speculum is new to my vet's practice. They used to just use an unobtrusive little mouth guard, till one of the vets got his pinky finger bit off.
It's all fun and games till someone gets their finger bit off.
While it may be safer for the vets, the horses are not pleased with the process.
They require sedation.
Would you sit still for such a procedure?
Yeah. Me neither.

Now everyone go call up your dentists and thank them.
