Text to read from Playboy:


So this is Playboy, 20 years old. I saw him for the first time in May this year. At that time we extracted two outer upper incisors because he has a bad form of EOTRH, which is Equine Odontoclastic Tooth Resorption and Hypercementosis. It is a painful dental disease in horses, where one component is that there is a lot of dental cement and the other component is that there is massive gum inflammation on the outside. That's when I saw him for the first time and he had been treated with vetdrop since last year to reduce inflammation of the gums. And now let's take a look at this. I'm curious how it looks now. Hey

So here I pulled a tooth back then.

And on the spot.

Everything has healed nicely. Back then it was bright red. All the gums everywhere were badly inflamed. He had quite a bit of tartar, you can see that now. It has formed a bit again, especially in the area of ​​the stallion's teeth on both sides. But the incisors are almost free of tartar and had a bit of feed all around them. That’s a lot better.

The gums and the discoloration also look a lot better. Pressure on the teeth, because he does not react. Quick break, hmmm and the gums look a lot better.

What you can see now is that this so-called hypercementosis, this massive formation of tooth cement that has progressed. You can actually see how the dental cement breaks through the gums. More pronounced to the tooth. And here you can see it on the side too. The two twos, they're fine in the tooth socket.

Of course you can see the EOTRH here is still present everywhere. Or the one that won't go away. We can't cure it with that, but you just see clearly the gums look a lot better. And back then it was very sensitive to pressure everywhere. So for me a clear sign that what happened with the vetdrop, the inflammation, the whole inflammation, the process can really be slowed down and the horses are much less sensitive to pain as a result. Now you just don't like to hold out anymore and of course you can't heal the process or the EOTRH with it. It is very clear. And at the advanced stage there is no other solution than pulling the teeth. Right now it's difficult. His hypercementosis has developed. Now the question is should we pull the middle two, one in the upper jaw, or not? How painful is it for the horse or not. For me, because the whole inflammation looks much better all around it is quite difficult to answer. There are still various factors. You can of course also say okay, if you want to be on the safe side, you can see all the teeth. But if you say it is justifiable for me personally to say hey, you wait, you will certainly continue to deal with it. What. What? What is very clear is that the external inflammation has really gotten a lot better with the vetdrop. So clear success.


Text to read from Max


That's Max. He's got an EOTRH too. I saw him for the first time six months ago in March. He is 26. So first of all I treated him and he was also in deep, deep sedation, so now he is not sedated, very painful in the deepest soul. I could hardly look at the front teeth. If I hit it, it's up in the air. It was very, very painful. And now based on the clinical picture it was clear that he also has EOTRH, already has clearly pronounced gums, gums were bright red and I also had great difficulty working on the molars, because of course the pressure that then came on with the mouth also gathered The incisors are exercised, that also hurt him a lot. It was a very difficult dental treatment and since then he has been receiving treatment and I am very curious to see what it looks like now. Most importantly, he's not sedated and I couldn't really do anything with him when sedated.

Let's see what he means now.

Due to the vetdrop treatment, of course, they are already used to someone doing something, then to the teeth.


So it looks a lot better. Has a bit of tartar formation again, but the inflammation of the gums, here too the lesions that have the punctiform characteristics for EOTRH, which are present, very clear that it is still there, but the gum inflammation just already the color of the gums is much better. It was all bright red and now I'm curious to see how you react to pressure at first it was just your teeth.


He really responded to everything.


Significantly better.


In a deeply sedated state, I couldn't do what I'm doing now.

Even where he clearly still has some signs of EOTRH inflammation, even there he is really not sensitive to pain. So definitely not to the outside world. We can only guess how strong the deep pains are for the horse. And it is often, I say, underestimated, even if it doesn't look bad from the outside, if it doesn't react so sensitively to pressure. But what is very clear to me is that with the vetdrop we are clearly lowering the bacterial load, lowering the inflammation, lowering the pain, which is then in any case favored from the outside by this disease and thus the horse is actually significantly better quality of life give. And so I'm pretty surprised how it really reacts much better in the unseded state, much better to the palpation and really looks a lot better. And I personally promise myself that because the vetdrop penetrates very deeply into the tooth socket, the effect is ultimately not only superficial, that at least one can actually count on pain relief there and at the same time at least stabilize the process can.
