Blue Mist Equine Veterinary Centre's Specialised Instrumentation and Equipment
Blue Mist Equine's Flexi-Float
Blue Mist Equine's state of the art occlusal equilibration (teeth floating) system offers the ultimate in patient, handler and operator safety. Advances in the Flexi-Float include constant water irrigation, vacuum, diamond disc head and fibre-optic lights.
The diamond disc quickly and efficiently removes the sharp points and overgrowths that have been cutting into your horses cheeks and tongue while sparing the delicate soft tissues of the mouth. Constant water cooling minimises the dangerous transfer of heat to the live areas of teeth (the pulp and its odontoblast processes) to prevent tooth damage and death which may occur with power floating systems without flushing.
The vacuum system surrounding the diamond head sucks up the carcinogenic tooth dust to prevent inhalation by the veterinarian or handler. The fibre-optic lights…well, what can I say? Our first-time clients are usually astonished at how much MOUTH they can see with good lights and a full mouth speculum in a sedated horse, and we're impressed with the amount of pathology we can see, too, and not miss, as in the past.
Blue Mist Equine has a Portable X-Ray Machine and Intraoral X-Ray Cassettes
Our lightweight portable X-ray unit with laser beam pointer assists in properly diagnosing your horse's dental or oral condition.
For special radiographic (X-ray) views of teeth and oral problems, we have intraoral cassettes. These are flexible packets containing radiographic film which are placed inside your horse's mouth, like your own dentist would use!
Blue Mist Equine's Alumi-Spec Speculum
Our Alumi-Spec is an extremely functional and lightweight speculum which allows much greater visualisation of oral structures and provides plenty of room to work within the mouth.
I wouldn't do without it now. It's easy to open and close and the horses seem more comfortable wearing it. Due to the construction of the mouthplates, it can be placed on anything from a small pony to a draft horse!
The Blue Mist Equine-Designed Equi-Still Portable Equine Stocks
