I desperately need to find someone who has lots of experience with the tmj in horses. This is hard to find it seems! My horse has a subchondral cyst (.osteoarthritis of the tmj) on one side and had an infected tooth removed from the other side and 2 vets have ruled this out as no issue despite my horse suffering from facial pain and substantial face asymmetry that was not present 3 years ago. He's responding positively to a soft diet and pain relief and cranial sacral therapy but I wish to discuss management long term of this condition as all my vets want to do is give him electroacupuncture and they'll stop giving me pain relief medication I fear soon if I don't comply.
