EOTRH

26/09/2014 by Dr Shannon Lee, BVSc MACVSc MICEVO, Equine Dental Vets

As well as being quite a mouthful, Equine Odontoclastic Tooth Resorption and Hypercementosis (better known as EOTRH) is a form of periodontal disease causing the destruction of dental tissues that lead to weakness, tooth fracture, pain and infection. 

Back in 2007, Dr Shannon Lee from Advanced Equine Dentistry diagnosed the first cases in Australia. Here, he explains about what is a common, yet poorly understood, progressive disease that, at present, has no cure and requires expert treatment and management from your Equine Dental Vet.
