Hi,

My dog, a mixed breed, is 13 and showing her age. i noticed something new. when i scratch her chin, the underside of her bottom jaw, she puts pressure against my hand as if to have me scratch/rub harder - she seems to enjoy it. her eyes roll back into her head sometimes. i notice her doing it to herself occassionally now - she will scratch her chin into the ground.

im wondering if anyone has noticed anything similar or heard of this? it seems odd that this would be happening in this particular spot.

all help is appreciated!

thanks,
Peter

Have you had her teeth checked recently? Sometimes they will start to have teeth trouble as they age, and if it was in the lower teeth, the pressure might make it feel better.
