My horse has an abscess in a rear left side upper molar. The infection has spread to the sinus area and smelly thick yellow stuff is coming out of the left nostril. I am giving antibiotics twice a day and the tooth will likely need to be removed.
Have any of you had a similar experience? Did you take your horse to a clinic or UCD or was it pulled at the barn? Was it done standing or on an operating table? Did you need to have the sinus flushed or a catheter inserted in the sinus? What sort of care did you do after the tooth was gone and were there any short or long term problems? Costs?
Thank you for your help. I always learn something new from the posts.
