Hi:

I just had a friend have her dog diagnosed with Trigeminal neuritis.    
Perhaps, this is the same problem the pup is having.  You can google it for 
lots of information about it.  Dog can't open it's mouth and is having a hard 
time eating and drinking.

Thanks so much to all of you who responded trying to help with information,  
xperience and suggestions 
nd web sites and sources to go to for answers to the question I posted below.
ust heard from my friend.........her friend's  young bitch is NEGATIVE for 
asticatory Muscle Myositis.
t often seems to me that Vets start looking for something "exotic"......when it 
ould be something as
imple as a fractured jaw, dislocated jaw or even a tumor or something more 
common".
 sent ALL of the suggestions that were sent in response and hope that some of 
hem are helpful to these
eople for their doggie.
f and when we hear the end of the story and they find the cause.......I will 
et you all know.
hat a great help this List can be with all the 'Dog People' and the huge source 
f experiences we have all 
een through and learned from each other!!!
here is always a new learning experience........and we can...... and do all 
elp each other.   
T IS MUCH APPRECIATED.    Thank you all very much!!     Now if their Vet will 
isten..........<G>

his is from my friend who bought the very pretty German Bitch at 6 months.  
ery reputable breeder.  They had her for a week 
nd noticed that she did not open her mouth very much.  They even put her under 
nesthesia and cannot open it more than 2 inches.  She manages to eat and play.  
he breeder will take her back and replace her, however, they will put her down. 
........ is waiting for the blood results that they sent off to the University 
Vet school in ......) She is now on prednisone which is suppose to cure it, 
owever ..........  She is probably the most beautiful German bitch I have ever 
een and they were very 
erious about breeding her.    I will let you know what the tests result in.  
hey will keep her until this is resolved one way 
r another.  If she cannot have a quality life, they will put her down.  
 Just thought you would like the information.     Will keep you informed.  She 
oes not have lock Jaw.
  Dear .......
 Thank you for calling and expressing your concern.  It means a lot.  We are 
ery worried about our little puppy.  One of the tests that they have done is 
or Masticatory Muscle Myositis.  If you google this, many articles come up.     
ne website that I copied some information from is as follows:
 vetneuromuscular.ucsd.edu/publications/Melmed.pdf
 If you google, you will see this web-site on the first page.
