Periapical curettage in infected mandibular cheek teeth
Infected teeth are not too rare in horses, and they often require intensive and also expensive diagnostic and therapeutic intervention. In this study, a simple technique especially useful for equine practitioners was evaluated and seems very promising.

The study was performed as a retrospective study on eleven horses (3-13 years) with periapical mandibular tooth infection. Hospital records (1992-2002) of horses that had periapical curettage for the treatment of mandibular cheek tooth root infection were retrieved. Clinical signs, radiographic, and surgical reports were reviewed. Outcome was obtained by telephone questionnaire for 7 horses and by physical examination in 2.

Eleven horses (14 infected mandibular molariform teeth) had periapical curettage. Two horses were lost to follow-up. Mean follow-up was 41 months; 2 horses had subsequent tooth repulsion, 7 (78%) horses healed completely although 2 horses still had some local mandibular swelling.

Periapical curettage, which allows alveolar drainage, appears to be a viable treatment option for periapical infections of equine mandibular cheek teeth. It can be performed simply, without expensive imaging or surgical equipment, and thus is useful for both referral and first opinion practice.

Specific bioactive collagen peptides (PETAGILE®) in horses with osteoarthritismembers
Horse owners tend to feed various substances and medications to horses suffering from osteoarthritis. The aim of this new study was to evaluate the clinical efficacy of specific bioactive collagen peptides (BCP), here administered orally as PETAGILE®, on horses with mild to moderate, naturally occurring osteoarthritis. Data from a two‐centred pilot study were used for the meta‐analysis.
