Re: jesse mouth issues


 

LJ, my almost 40 year old Cushings horse, frequently had loose teeth.  His dentist would work with the planes until the tooth was almost horizontal, and had calcified at the bottoms as they tipped a bit, and until they were loose enough to remove in a dental exam, he left them.   (Sure there might have been instances where surgery would have been the answer, but not just 'a loose tooth')

Removing molars surgically would have left gaps, and the teeth to either side would loose their 'support'. 

Months before 40, he still had at least half of his teeth. 

BUT, his diet at that point was 100% ODTBCubes, hydrated.  And as a pasture pet, and 1000#, he got more than your feeding Jesse.
