    What's the average cost to have a horse's teeth done, if it is done by a vet who came out to the barn? Thanks!

    $75 to $125, average.

    $200-$300 including the farm call. That is with the power tools :)

    But you are in CA. :p

    I've paid $100 in OK and $125 in MO to have Regal's teeth done by vets who specialize in performance dentistry. We always haul out to them, though.

    It seems like the very first year I had him and didn't know much I had his teeth done by a (not-vet) dentist coming through the area, without power tools, for $50ish.

    It really depends where you are and who you get to do them (vet and dentist are different... often with different techniques as well). It also heavily depends on what is WRONG with the particular horse. If you are lucky enough to just get by with a float/alignment then it will be considerably cheaper than if there is something significantly wrong with that horse. I pay $110 cdn for Daisy's regular float/adjustment... PLUS sedation costs and mileage.

    My dude, who is BRILLIANT, charges $55, and when I had him out to check teeth for bitting issues, and he found nothing, he dind't charge me. Wouldn't let me pay for gas, it was his first time to the barn, and he got lost for about an hour. LOVE HIM.

    It is about $75 at my vet, which I find pretty reasonable. But I trailered in, a ranch call would be about $50 more.
