Jaw Issues....

I have to take medicine for my jaw every day. I have whats basically TMJ(Temporomandibular joint disorder) in humans. Mommy & Daddy noticed I was in a lot of pain when I yawned or opened my mouth too wide to get a toy or treat. They took me to the vet & found out I was in pain because my jaw was popping out of place & this would cause it to be inflamed. So the vet said for Mommy to try some anti-inflammatory & see how they work, & if they don't help then I may have something more serious. However, they are working, Mommy & Daddy(& ME!) are very happy with how much they're helping me! So here is a video Mommy made of me taking my medication!

Seems like I still have some left to take! I have to be prepared for flu season too you know! BOL!

Daddy said me that you must have your ATM (tempormandibular joints) in repose also... then no toys too big and eat soft...
Of course the medication is OK.
Paws and get weel soon

Poor Eduardo. I have TMJ, so I know how painful it can be. I take medication too, and it helps some.

It's so great that you have a mom and dad who take such good care of you.

I hope that the medicine makes everything ALL BETTER!

OMG! I LOVE the way your momma talks! And she says such sweet things to you too.

You are lucky. I have to take 11 pills for my tick disease and mean momma just throws it in my kibbles and then whatever I don't eat she tosses down my throat herself. Yuck. Your approach looks much better.

You are just the cutest little thing.
