It's "What's that? Wednesday, where we feature medical terms & conditions to satisfy your inner nerd ๐Ÿค“ . MANDIBULAR PROGNATHISM (aka Class III Malocclusion): the fancy word for "underbite". This condition is commonly seen in brachycephalic "smush face" breeds of dogs and cats, and occurs when the maxilla (upper jaw) is shorter than the mandible (lower jaw). I will admit that underbites are super cute, but be aware that it often results in significant dental/oral issues including tooth crowding, tooth-to-tooth wear, trauma to the lips and gums, and early dental disease. Dogs with underbites should undergo frequent dental assessments and oral surgery + cleanings as needed. . Did you know that February is National Pet Dental Health Month?? It's a great time to make sure that your pet's mouth is ready for kisses on Valentine's Day!! โค๏ธLeave questions in the comments!

It's "What's that? Wednesday!", where we feature medical terms & conditions to satisfy your inner nerd ๐Ÿค“ . ALOPECIA (al-oh-Peesh-ah): the fancy word for "hair loss". Pets with allergies will commonly have areas of alopecia as a result of self-trauma from pruritus ๐Ÿค“ Other major causes of alopecia include hormonal imbalances and/or infectious agents (like mites, ringworm, or bacteria). In this pic, sweet Mable has been constantly licking and chewing at her skin, creating large areas of alopecia. We will be adjusting her treatment plan to help her feel much better!! . There are tons of other causes for alopecia so if you are noticing hair loss in your pet, it's time for a vet visit! Any questions, ask in the comments!
