Alex has been through a lot since he has been here. Mr. Alex was diagnosed with trigeminal neuritis also known as “jaw drop” a month ago. He has been doing mouth exercises with toys and working on growing his muscles.
Alex has been to Companion Pet Care and they think Alex could also have Masticatory Muscle Myositis. It would cost you $150 to do the testing to find out for sure. The treatment is inexpensive. Mr Alex would need to go on Prednisone or Cortisone. Both are affordable drugs. Masticatory Muscle Myositis prognosis is that Alex will have a degeneration of muscle tissue but there is no discomfort, it is not fatal, and it doesn't have any effect on his eating ability.
