Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.
Were any x-rays taken to confirm where and what was dislocated? Were any fractures or breaks noted?
I would suggest doing so. If there is difficulty for him getting one area to reduce property or if there is a fracture, time can be of the essence in addressing this medically for the highest rate of success. The yawning behavior can be due to pain or trying to mobilize the jaw in such as manner as to make it feel normal (which can help to reduce a dislocation, in some cases). If it isn't 'normal' by now, he's done all he can do on his own at home. It's time to see your vet.
Checking in, JACustomer. How is Bentley today?
