McCarthy Equine Dentistry
Thank you for choosing McCarthy Equine Dentistry for your horse's dental needs. We are receiving up to 10 appointment requests per day through multiple channels and would like to create a central location, so no one gets missed. This page also offers a quick over view of fees, scheduling, and other pertinent information about your horse's visit.
Fees (Please note there will be a new fee schedule starting June 1, 2018)
This includes removing sharp points, establishing equilibration, and reducing malocclusions. There is no additional fees for removing ramps, waves, or adjusting incisors. We believe that should be included as part of any float. The blow prices are for horses floated within 100 miles of our farm. There is an additional $10/horse for horses located 100-150 miles from our barn, $15/horse for horses located 151-200 miles from our farm, and $20/horse for barns greater than 200 miles from our farm. We are located in Berryville, Virginia.
1 horse floated - $85
2 horses floated - $75 per horse
3 horses or more floated at one time at one location - $65 per horse
Exam Fee - $20. This fee is charged on all horses not requiring a float. Older horses are often kept on a 6 month examination schedule, but do not require any actual work. This small fee covers travel time and gas for the appointment.
Payment - PLEASE READ CAREFULLY
Payment is due at time of service. No exceptions. If paying over the phone or by Pay Pal, payment is still due as soon as the float is performed, not days or a week after the service was performed. Barn owners, please make clients aware of this before the appointment is scheduled. If payment is not received in full within 24 hours, a $25 fee per horse will be imposed. McCarthy Equine Dentistry does not accept checks unless extenuating circumstances (such as a 501c that their only form of payment is checks) and prior authorization is given prior to EACH appointment. If you bounce a check, we will charge the maximum fee allowed by your state, with a minimum fee of $50. If you write a check without prior approval, there will be a $25 fee per horse. We really hate that it has come to this, but it is just the two of us and we simply do not have time to be chasing people down for payment. We gladly accept cash and also take Credit/Debit cards via Square and Pay Pal. On occasion, we've even traded services for livestock or farm equipment. It never hurts to ask.
Scheduling And Farm Call Fees (Beginning January 1, 2017)
There is no farm call fee for horses located within 100 miles of our farm in Berryville, Virginia. There will be an additional fee of $10 per horse for horses located 100 to 150 miles, a $15 fee per horse for horses 151 to 200 miles, and a $20 fee per horse for horses located 201 or more miles from our location. For barns in MD, PA, and WV with 8 or more horses floated and are over 100 miles from our barn, we will offer additional discounts. Please ask.
