Poor Madison! It sounds like she should be seen by your family veterinarian tomorrow. It would be highly unusual for a jaw to dislocate due to eating bones UNLESS there was a pre-existing condition (such as bone cancer). I'm hopeful it may be something as simple as dental disease and/or an infected tooth. What kind of dog id Madison, and what medications is she currently taking for her urinary crystals? - Dr. C

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
She is just on a prescription food diet

What kind of dog is Madison? Is the prescription food a canned formula? Is she showing any interest in her food? - Dr. C
