Sometimes horses have to be euthanized in cases when they are so much aggressive that the owners do not know what else to do. In some cases the horse can be fixed if you know what’s causing the aggression, but sometimes the owner simply decides to take the drastic route of euthanasia.
This photo, taken during necropsy, shows the mouth of a horse who was euthanized for aggressive behavior. Next time…
The horse from this story was put to sleep and after he was gone, the owners found a huge source of pain that provoked his aggression. He had the most painful mouth as the necropsy photo showed. You can’t imagine with how much pain that horse was dealing everyday. Just look at that photo!
So, what you can learn from this unfortunate example is to always consult a veterinarian when something is bothering your horse. This lovely creatures can’t always show you a sign of what’s wrong with them. Remember that horse’s teeth must be checked from time to time!
