We have a mare that needs her teeth floated. Most of the vets use the power float and sedate the horse. Is it safe for a mare 95 days pregnant to be sedated

You are safe to sedate with whatever drug they want to use.

That's good to know. I was pretty sure I had one of my mares sedated when she was pregnant but I couldn't remember for sure. I figured it probaby was safe since broodmares are always pregnant and you have to take care of their teeth!

My Vet suggested to me that if the mare could wait until after she foals that would be a ideal situation for the mare and her pregnancy.
I did feel a little uneasy about sedation, My mares teeth weren't all that bad so in my situation it was the right thing to do!

Take care all!

At ten months in foal, I noticed my mare actually had an ulcer on her gums, from her teeth being so sharp..Shes 12 and had never had a dental..My vet wanted to wait, beauce with sedation, theres always a chance of bacteria getting in the blodstream, which can be bad...but when he saw her teeth, he decided to do it...she felt much better, and was fine..but your vet will know..

Just like you said Noahsark, I think every situation is different and you have to decide if the benefits outweigh the cons. If needed, sedation can be used in pregnancy.
