Re: Healthy mouth for horses safe with yucca in it?

The pocket formed at the gum line because the teeth were separated by a small amount and feed was packed in it. He thinks they will realign with time. I agree with your theory of using it systemically. I was using it as a mouth wash by syringing it in her mouth. Found that very time consuming and wanted to try it on the feed as recommended. It was better just by using it as a mouth wash or maybe it would have healed on its own. He did put a dissolvable dental material in the sepa
ration when it was discovered. I used 10 ml in a quart of water and then split that between two horses. Most comes out anyway. 5 to 10 ml seems like such a small amount to affect insulin and glucose. I just want to do what is best.

My equine dentist recommends Healthy Mouth for my miniature horse. She had a pocket in her gums at the base of her teeth.<> The pocket is nearly gone and her breath is better. Her water bucket was extremely smelly before and now is not since using the Healthy Mouth. I would dilute the Healthy Mouth with water and rinse/syringe her mouth.
Hi Jan,
I wouldn't feed it to my horse. It contains cinnamon, riboflavin(vit B2), and vit C along with the yucca. All of these ingredients are contra-indicated in an IR equine. Don't understand WHY it would be of any help taken internally for an oral issue. What was the pocket at the base of her teeth? Did the dentist say?
