TMJ Jaw Problems in Dogs

Saturday, September 22, 2018
posted by Jim Murphy

The TMJ Joint is a hinged jaw that lets your jaw open and close. Problems with it can occur in pets as well as people.  Inflammation, developmental structure and trauma are a few ways that your pet can end up with a TMJ that isn’t functioning properly. As a result, your pet may be unable to eat without pain or in a severe case, may be unable to open his  mouth at all. If you notice that your do is having trouble eating or opening and closing his mouth, see your vet right away.  Problems with TMJ are generally diagnosed by a pet dentist through radiography or CT scans. It’s important to investigate TMJ problems promptly because many get worse over time and can cause discomfort for your pet until they are treated. For more information, talk to your veterinarian.

Remember, your pets count!
