Re: Symptoms of Selenium Deficiency

Hello Steve,

Well that makes perfect sense! I hope things have improved since the time you discovered the jaw issue.

Best wishes,

Dr. Getty

Dear DR. Getty,

Thank you for your reply.

We had a Chiropractor out in the last week. He noted by feeling the jaw that the young filly had a fall about two and a half months ago, which resluted in a dislocated jaw without swelling and very hard to detect. As a result eating has been painful. In adition, her teeth have been ground down unevenly.

So we will have the teeth done.

It seems now we might be out of the woods. Thank you for your advice.
