Bot fly or Gastrophilus intestinalis are something many horse owners have seen. You’ve seen those sticky eggs stuck to a horses legs, and perhaps frustrated yourself trying to remove them. There is a good reason you should try to remove them, these eggs 🥚 end up inside your horses mouth where they hatch as larva ( maggots ) and migrate into the gums to mature. This is what you can see in this photo series. When the come out they leave behind deep bacteria laden bleeding pockets that are an ongoing issue for the horse. Worming your horse will not prevent this as the larva are protected inside the gums.
The five densities of X-ray, if you have visited your own dentist then it’s likely you’ve been made aware of the important role dental X-rays play in caring for your teeth.

It’s important to understand that horses teeth are all different and that they change as the horse ages. As they are complex 3 dimensional structures, when they are diseased and need to be removed, that removal can also be complex. Your Equine Dental Veterinarian will often use tools such as X-ray to examine the teeth closely as part of planning a tooth removal.
Take a look, give this some thought. What do you see?
