Many people have stumbled across this blog searching for information about Equine Odontoclastic Tooth Resorption and Hypercementosis (EOTRH), and the posts are all tagged with EOTRH, but I figured it might be easier to put them on their own page in order!
My OTTB Jack was diagnosed with advanced EOTRH in May of 2020, a month after his 25th birthday. Over the following 6 months, he had all of his incisors pulled. Below is the posts in order - some have gruesome photos, but there are always warnings and plenty of space left if you don't want to see them :) if you have any questions about my experience with EOTRH that aren't addressed in the posts, feel free to drop me an email at email@example.com.
- Initial diagnosis
- First round of extractions (top incisors)
- One week check post-extractions
- Bottom incisor issues leading to another extraction
- Second round of extractions (bottom incisors)
- Check up post-second round of extractions
- First regular dental post-extractions
- If there are any other EOTRH-related updates, I will continue to update the page!
Jack has zero issues eating grass or hay (he receives a mixture of grass hay and straight alfalfa) -- aside from no longer using a hay net in his stall, I haven't made any other management changes. He is still sassy and obnoxious as ever!
