Rocket Man Gets Two Teeth Pulled


Rocket Man is one of our three miniature gelding donkeys, he stands 28 inches tall age twenty-five. Rocket Man is the star of our business logo “donkey sitting down On Donkey Time ®”.

 

Donkeys can live to fifty years of age. Like people the teeth start to fail with age.  As my hubby and I sit in the truck waiting for the oral surgery to end my mind travels back to the day we met him. Rocket Man came into our life at age 13 with Rio our Mammoth donkey age 9 months.

 

Rocket Man is waiting at our vets office recovery room. One horse standing next to him is waiting to go home. She adores Rocket Man, every time Rocket Man goes for a walk she screams and prances. Most horses do not like donkeys right away due to the smell. Donkeys do not have a smell. Donkeys have fur and personality.

Please make sure your vet is experienced in donkeys healthcare. Donkeys digest drugs different than a horse. Pain relief is Usually banamine. Please do not take a chance for colic with a donkey. Donkeys are stoic will not show pain until it is too late. We are waiting for Rocket Man to start making normal gut sounds and he will go home.

We are happy to report Rocket Man is on his way home. Three days of home care and he should be back to perfect health again. Home care is making sure Rocket Man does not colic, washing out the pockets where the tooth was, home pain medication.

We are very grateful to our vets, equine Oral Tooth Surgeon and our veterinarian who does the wellness for our farm.

Thank you Jesus. 🙂
