    DefaultRaw lower jaw?

    Ok... Ender has two spots on his lower jaw that are allways a bit darker then the rest but tonight one side in particular looks really RAW to me. Is this normal? When I was holding him and got close to it, he did kind of flinch but it could have been he just wanted to go back to playing... anyways... here are some pictures. Is there something I should do?

    Normal-ish side

    Lindsay, has he been chewing on a bone or anything else in particular for a long time today?

    Not especially... he has a visitor... my mom's lab and he's been chewing on him quite a bit!

    You know, the last time we had Larry with my mom's labs both he and one of her girls ended up with raw lips, but it was more around the crease of their mouths than on the lower jaw. We chalked it up to opening their mouths too wide while playing, and it went away pretty quickly. This looks a little different, though.

    Unfortunately, I'm not sure what to suggest other than limiting his access to chewable stuff (bones, knobby nylabones, etc) for a couple of days and see if that helps. If it doesn't clear up on it's own by Tuesday-ish, or gets worse between now and then, I'd head to see the vet.

    I hope Ender feels better!

    At least he's cute enough to make up for it. The head tilting cracks me up. Your pictures are always so cute!

    LOL... thanks... right now he's being a little PITA with Apollo (his visiting 4 yr old brother) barking at him 'cause Apollo has his nylabone that he never wants.

    Charlie does that sometimes. I spray the area with dilute listerine (1:10 Listerine:water) and clean it with a clean soft towel. That usually clears it right up. I think it happens because the upper lip covers that area and it never gets to dry completely.

    ender, your ma needs to chill; she's gonna turn you into a pusillanimous pooch. just tell her you're a beautiful pup, and she should cut back on all those pics on how you tilt your frigging head, 'cause those pics are making you seem gay amongst the other ladradoooodles.
