Equine Odontoclastic Tooth Resorption & Hypercementosis (EOTRH)

Equine Odontoclastic Tooth Resorption and Hypercementosis, or EOTRH, is a painful, progressive, dental disease affecting the incisors (and less frequently, the canines) in older horses. As the name suggests, EOTRH is characterized by the gradual resorption of internal and external tooth structure and subsequent build up of cementum on the exterior of the tooth. As the disease progresses, the pulp, alveolar bone, and periodontal ligament that holds the tooth in place within the socket become inflamed and infected, thereby reducing the structural security of the tooth. Severe disease may lead to fracturing of the affected teeth. Excessive production of cementum (hypercementosis), often in a bulbous shape, serves as the body’s natural defense to provide added structure to the diseased tooth. It is the loosening of the diseased teeth that is the source of great pain to the horse. Continue reading

It can be quite a dramatic and frightening scene, so here a few things you should know! When it comes to small animals or humans, we automatically think of choke referring to something being lodged in the trachea and therefore causing difficulty or inability to breathe. In horses, however, the obstruction is usually caused by feed material or sometimes a foreign body in the esophagus NOT the trachea – the good news is that your horse can still breathe!

Cellulitis

Cellulitis is characterized by inflammation and infection within the skin and connective tissue. It usually results from a wound that allows bacteria to penetrate the protective barrier of the skin surface and become seeded within the subcutaneous tissues. Often the initiating cause is never able to be identified, as it may be too small to visualize. Continue reading
