    I don't think my vet charged anything extra when I had them pulled during a teeth float...

    I use an equine dentist, my vet doesnt want to be bothered with teeth, unless it is a lay down type surgery. My vet leaves the drugs with me and my dentist pulls the wolf teeth with the float, it was an extra 25 dollars

    Horses typically have two wolf teeth. The local anesthetic shot is usually $8 total. Pulling the wolf teeth is $25-$35. If the horse has 4 wolf teeth usually double the cost. If they are blind wolf teeth it is usually $8 for the local shot and between $60 and $90 for the surgery to remove them including stitches if needed. This is all assuming that the horse is already sedated for the float. One thing to notice when someone pulls wolf teeth on your horse, make sure they show them to you. Some people just break them off below the gum line. This only causes more issues later.

    Ok just asking as I have to pay $180.00 including sedation just for a yearly float on a "good" mouth.. My older horse may need teeth pulled soon so I'm wondering how much extra that might be to have the money on hand. From reading other people's posts on here about floating costs it seems in my area is crazy expensive. I have a enquine dentist not just a vet too who is only a 15 minute drive so gas is included in that price.

    So did you really mean wolf teeth or did you mean molars? Just asking as this post was referring to teeth other then wolf teeth.

    With sedation, routine floats by someone good in many parts of the US run between 150-200. Like I said, that is someone good. In almost any part of the US you can get teeth floated for 75, buyer beware with that! Often you get what you pay for.

    Well I first meant wolf teeth and then when others chipped in about their normal costs for a float plus pulling out molars I was thinking it was going to be really expensive to get the wolf teeth pulled as well. From what you just said (notnewtome) the price I pay is fairly reasonable. Do you find that wolf teeth are quite common to pull out and or interfere with the bit placement? I haven't had any problems yet with them so I am a little in the dark.. I'll as my dentist when he comes out though.

    Always pull wolf teeth on a horse before the horse is started.
