Hello, I m writing on here due to being greatly concerned for my cairn cross. She also has some Yorkshire and Jack Russell in her. She has been doing very well except that at her first vet inspection we were told that she had an overshot jaw. We took her back 2 weeks later and are now being told that she needs an op to remove her lower canines to allow jaw to grow before adult teeth come through. The vet doesn't exactly fill me with confidence that the op will have any effect though and the whole things sounds like a load of pain and discomfort for Gumbo when she is doing so well. You can't see any evidence of the overshot jaw and she is eating well. I am going to ask for a second and third opinion from other local vets too before making a decision. Anyone out there have any experience of this? Is it worth the bother or is she better off as she is? She is a much loved family pet and we don't want to put her through any unnecessary trauma.
