Jaw problem with Rosie.
« on: April 24, 2012, 20:18 »
I had to take Rosie to the vets today as one side of her bottom jaw is a lot deeper than the other. There is no pain and it feels like solid bone.   
Has anybody else had this problem and what was the outcome?
She is back on Friday for sedation and an x-ray - she could have gone in tomorrow but the vet we saw is off until Friday and as she has never seen such a big difference in two sides of the same jaw.
Staffies are softer than you think.

She'll still be growing won't she Joy? Just uneven growth?  :unsure:

she is my avatar a Staffie x English bull terrier and is now 4.5 months old.
The vets have given us several reasons of what it could be ranging from - just a deformity, an adult tooth growing into her jaw bone, a tumour, an abscess or ulcer, an old fracture from play fighting with the big dogs or something that is a growth deformity where her other side will catch up.
We had growth deformity with Ollie and her otherside caught up which is why we have waited for a few weeks but whilst Neapolitan mastiffs and Westies are known for this Rosies breeds aren't.

That's what we thought having gone through this with Ollie but this seems to be getting deeper rather than wider and her bottom jaw shouldn't be that deep even when fully grown  :(

me too, fingers crossed it is something simple. She isn't in any pain with it even when the vet was trying to squeeze and prod it all over. But there was no way she was letting her get her fingers inside her mouth - that giant jaw clamped so tight nothing was getting in there, hence the sedative being needed and not just to get her to lie still for the x-rays  ::)

It's a kitty we took in, she has bad teeth, so gone in for a dental. Teeth cleaning is ok, just the anasetic is a worry.

We have none of her history, how old she is or if she has had an op before. We think she is speyed ?

Vet reckons she is a lot older than our other cat, who is 10, so maybe very old.

No news, so sounds good.

Hope Rosie's visit goes well & it's nothing too serious.
