Survey of dental diseases in Crioulo breed horses reared in an extensive farming system

Abstract: The present study aimed to identify and quantify dental diseases in Crioulo horses reared exclusively under extensive farming conditions. In total, 254 Crioulo horses were evaluated, that were reared exclusively in native pastures with predominantly Eragrostis plana (Annoni grass). The animals were divided into three groups according to age: three to five years (G1), six to 12 years (G2), and 13 to 26 years (G3). In total, 46.1% of the animals in G1, 63.8% in G2, and 82.3% in G3 had two or more incisor disorde… Show more

“…The high prevalence of enamel tips in animals kept on pastures in this study corroborates the findings of Leite et al (2019), who reported a high prevalence of enamel points in horses under extensive farming. These findings suggest that other factors may be involved in the development of these changes, in addition to feeding practices.…”

“…Excessive enamel tips occur mainly because of changes in the eating habits of horses (PAGLIOSA et al, 2006). Enamel tips are the most reported alterations in equine dentistry, with a reported incidence between 44% and 85.1% (BERBARI NETO et al, 2013;LEITE et al, 2019;MELO;FERREIRA, 2023), being more prevalent in horses up to 9 years of age because of the rhizogenesis of permanent teeth (PAGLIOSA et al, 2006). The introduction of concentrated feeds and the reduction in forage supply decrease chewing time and promote more vertical chewing movements, which result in changes in tooth wear.…”
