Mable The Pitt & Her Locked Up Jaw Disorder

Dog Locked Up Jaw DisorderMeet miss Mable. Mable here is just a puppy and within the first week of being adopted was already having problems. Her problems weren’t exactly run of the mill though because they had to do with her poor jaw. Mable could only open her mouth a fraction of what is considered normal and when she did there was a popping sound each time. She looked like she wanted to yawn but just couldn’t complete the task. Her new fur parents were very concerned! In addition to her jaw problems the poor girl was incredibly itchy, hot to the touch, and had a tinge of pink to her coat. Her visits to the vet proved uneventful as they could find nothing wrong with her jaw and told her parents that some dogs were just “hot” all the time. This didn’t quite sit right with Mable’s new mom so she found our mom. On her first visit, Mable had one of the tightest temporomandibular joints (TMJ) our mom had ever seen. For such a young pup she certainly had done some damage to her TMJ. She had multiple areas already shifting within her spine, some of which were correlating exactly with where she was warmer. After her first adjustment Mable had one of the biggest yawns ever. By her second adjustment, her jaw had improved light-years and she was able to open her mouth twice as far as she could originally. The popping was happening, though less frequently, and shockingly she was no longer exceptionally warm. After her second adjustment, Mable’s TMJ issues were completely resolved. Now if there’s ever a time where it begins to act up, Mable’s mom knows who to call, and our mom is so happy she could help this young pup get the best nap of her life!
