I noticed last Thursday that my horse was not eating much of his grain and he ws dropping a lot of hay. Since then I have had the vet out and he told me that my horse has severe periodontal disease. He has an abscess on his cheek and several on his bottom gum. His gums and receding and he is having trouble eating. The vet told my to give him some bute for the pain and he gave me some antibiotics. If those don't get him eating more agressively, I don't know what to do. He is not eating his beetpulp and grain but I am going to try some alphalpha cubes and/or rice bran. If anyone has any suggestions, please comment.
