Has anyone ever experienced a clicking jaw with their basset? I just got a new pup from a very reputable breeder (Maredge) and took him to our vet for his first check up. All went well except for this problem with his TM joint. My vet admitted that he didn't know much about this topic but suggested that I go see a dental specialist. Although I don't have a problem spending the money (our last basset ran us about $10,000 due to various surgeries. He was from a pet store and eventually had to be put down at age 5) I'm wondering if I should wait to see if the condition subsides. On the other hand I'd hate to see this develop into something like arthritis. Otis' health is our main concern. Any feedback will be much appreciated.
