Equine Advanced Dentistry -Dr. Gamboa stated: "I have found that many problems in the equine
athlete are due to dental problems, and once corrected, the improvement is incredible. I decided to
perform equine dentistry because I found that many horses had dental problems and
trainers/owners could not find a capable equine veterinarian doing good equine dentistry". Dr.
Gamboa has been performing dental work since 1995 and he utilizes the latest technology available
in motorized equipment. He has kept up to date on many techniques and methods through
extensive continuing education seminars. Please call for appointments and information. The cost
for first time patients is $230.00, and for maintenance, annual and bi-annual dentistry is $185.00,
as long as the recommendations are follow. I have a more economical option for horses not in
training, not competing or yearlings for $135.00. This includes the complete procedure, sedation as
needed and NSAID's. The farm call will be split between the number of horses done. 95% of my
patients fell in this range, if additional services need to be done, an estimate will be done, or
referral may be recommended, depending on each individual case. (You Tube Dentistry Video)

passages, guttural pouches and upper esophagus. Useful in pre-purchase exams, pneumonia or
reactive airway diseases.
Cryosurgery – device used to freeze tissues using liquid Nitrogen. Offers a way to remove tumors
that would be otherwise difficult to excise or where it is contraindicated to excise them like
sarcoids or warts.
Mesotherapy - Mesotherapy is a treatment that stimulates the mesoderm, the middle layer of the
skin, which will, in turn relieve a wide variety of symptoms and ailments. The mesotherapy
injections involve extremely small needles that penetrate the interdermal layer of the skin only a
very small depth, which is typically four to six millimeters. The number of treatments needed
depends on many variables including the condition, the abnormal physiology causing the condition,
as well as the chronicity of the problem. A minimum of one to two sessions of mesotherapy is
performed generally to assess the horse’s response. It is effective for a multitude of conditions
because it helps reverse the physiology of that condition, and stop the pain spasm cycle. I have
used Mesotherapy in hundreds of horses with a very high efficacy, with conditions such as chronic
back pain and degenerative arthritis of the back and cervical vertebrae (neck).
Vet-Stem Cells - A stem cell is a naturally occurring undifferentiated cell that can transform into a
specific type of tissue such as tendon, ligament, bone and nerve. Stem cell have the ability to self
renew and to regenerate healthy tissue. Vet-Stem Cell™ therapy is available now through Dr.
Gamboa. The idea is simple: Concentrate and deliver active healing cells to the site where healing
is needed the most. Vet-Stem Cells™ are concentrated from adipose tissue (fat) obtained in a
minimally invasive procedure, then re-implanted at the site of injury. This treatment have is a
great tool for bone injuries (arthritis, fractures, cysts, OCD) and soft tissue injuries (tendons and
ligaments). For more info go to http://www.vet-stem.com/
IRAP: One of the major inducers of osteoarthritis is the inflammatory cytokine Interleukin - 1(IL-1)
which plays a key role in accelerating tissue destruction and the repair mechanisms. In a healthy
joint, IL-1 and interleukin -1 receptor antagonist (IL-1lRa) are in balanced concentrations. I cases
of osteoarthritis, there is not sufficient IL-1 lRa produced to block the damage caused by increased
IL-1. The result is inflammation, joint pain, and finally cartilage destruction. The procedure begins
with drawing blood from the horse that will be treated with IRAP into a syringe. The syringe is
specially prepared with glass beads that stimulate production of the antagonist protein and an
anticoagulant. The blood is harvested, incubated and centrifuged to separate the plasma (abundant
with IRAP) from the blood, then inject the obtained substance into the affected joints. This can be
done as often as needed and depends on the individual horse and the individual reason to its use.
There is no foreign substance introduced, so is natural healing but multiply by concentrating the
IRAP into the affected joint.
