Allright so i am new to this forum so hello to all, i am posting because my three year old pit bull terrier, i think he is a goddie pit is what i have been told well i fed him a bone and after wards he seems to be having a hard time closing his jaw. He opens it and grinds his teeth closing it. He dose have his bottom teeth infornt i beleive its an over bite. anyways so i checked his mouth no bone on top or stuck i felt down his air pipe and then gaged him to make sure he did not have any bone logeed in his throte. nothing so should i worry it sounds bad his teeth grinding like that but he seems fine when he chilling. I looked online for anything and came up short so i would appriciate the input.

bottom jaw is farther out? underbite. and im assuming goddy is Gotti? that would be american bully . I have a couple who have grinded there teeth in there sleep but dont do it on a normal basis, if it was something all the time I would worry about them grinding there teeth down but not sure what you can do to stop it. Is this just a 1 time thing? I wouldnt worry to much about it , if there isnt anything stuck in his teeth and if he stops Id just ignore it { can be annoying I hate that sound}.

he may have just had something stuck in his teeth im sure you know even the smallest thing can be annoying or maybe he got it out before you checked. I wouldnt worry about it.
