Sebastian’s Dental Surgery

      No Comments on Sebastian’s Dental Surgery

Sebastian has a condition called EOTRH,  Equine Odontoclastic Tooth Resorption and Hypercementosis Syndrome, which required all his remaining front teeth to be extracted today.

Although it looks as though we were using a torture chamber, Sebastian was as comfortable as he could be during his procedure. He only really fussed at us once after what seemed to be the most difficult tooth to remove. As always, Dr. Myran was patient with us asking a lot of questions so we could learn while he was working – and for allowing the pictures. 

Sebastian went to grazing almost immediately and definitely appreciated his soaked hay. After about three hours out of sedation he decided he really needed a quick run around the pasture.

Tonight at dinner he dove right in – he gets soaked pellets anyway – and let us know that he’s not sweating this stuff we’re all so worried about. He’s already much happier, except that he can’t go back in his pasture with his buddies just yet.

Between Friday’s surgery with Penny and today’s surgery with Sebastian, we had a Veterinary bill of $677 that was unplanned. Please consider a tax deductible donation towards this cost so that our hay funds remain secure. Our PayPal is the easiest way and doesn’t charge any fees if the Friends and Family option is used, comment Sebastian or Hay. We always accept check, money order, cash, and in kind donations.
