Dr. Dent has extensive experience in equine lameness
including prior farrier experience and lameness
research publications in major veterinary journals. We
approach lameness cases methodically, utilizing
thorough physical examinations, flexion tests, nerve
blocks and imaging to diagnose the cause of lameness
in your horse. We consider lameness diagnosis and
treatment one of our strengths at Sanpete Veterinary
Prior to the purchase of a new horse, we highly
recommend an examination to determine the overall
health of the animal. Pre-purchase exams include a
thorough physical exam, opthalmic exam, oral exam,
neurologic exam and lameness exam. Depending on
your specific needs, other tests can be performed.
Examples include radiographs, bloodwork, drug
screening, reproductive exam and genetic disease
Dental maintenance is very important regardless of the
discipline your horse is involved in. We employ the
latest technology in power dental tools to provide a
quality dental float for your horse. As part of our
dental service, we treat common conditions such as
sharp points, malocclusion, retained caps and infected
or broken teeth.
We perform many basic surgical procedures including
castration, cryptorchid castration, wound repair and
management, hernia repair and tumor removals. More
complex surgeries requiring special equipment are
referred to an equine surgical center.
We offer all basic equine reproduction services
including breeding management, reproductive
ultrasound, artificial insemination, management of poor
fertility and neonatal care.

vaccinations, de-worming, yearly physical
examinations and nutritional consultation. When your
