Who doesn’t love working with Donkeys!
This Jenney (as opposed to the males, named Jack) had a problem with one of her teeth on her mandible that needed to be extracted surgically from the outside of the mouth, going underneath the masseter muscle (the big one you can feel move at the angle of your jaw when you clench your teeth) . We actually found a rather nasty abscess around the root. In this case we would describe the abscess as peri-apical, peri meaning around whilst apical denotes that it is at the apex of the tooth (the root)
If anyone has any related questions, I have my “professional handbook of the Donkey” sat in my car!
