Definition: Wolf teeth are small, often pointed, teeth that grow just forward of the horse's molars. They sometimes need to removed so the horse is more comfortable carrying the bit. Wolf teeth can also become ulcerated, or infected. They are not the same as tushes or canine teeth that are sometimes seen growing about midway along the bars of the horse's mouth--the gap between the front incisors and molars.

Examples:We had the colt's wolf teeth removed because they caused him to shake his head when he carried a bit.
