19th December, 2008 The Tooth Fairy

Bit of an epic day at Ann's helping her with her six ponies who were all due to have their teeth done. Ranging in age from 18 months to 18 years, they really did highlight why it so important to have a good vet or dental technician. The eldest one has started to get gaps between her teeth where the grass gets wedged and could start to cause real trouble. Leo, who has his jaw broken when kicked last year, has a completly rotten milk tooth and a permanent tooth that is heading off in the wrong direction. Despite being a baby, Freddie had really sharp hooks on his milk teeth. It brought it home to me just how early they could start to have problems if their teeth were just left to their own devices. Fortunately Chris Pearce is a real expert in this field.
