Tilly – The Staffy With A Bite Issue

Tilly – The Staffy With A Bite Issue

Name: Tilly
Age: 3yrs old
Weight: 21kgs
Breed: Staffy X
Sex: Female

History: Tilly came to Wilston vet for her regular annual vaccination. During her pre-vaccine health check Dr. Nichola Hinchy noticed something strange happening with her teeth. Tilly was unfortunate enough to have a malocclusion of her jaw resulting in a noticeable “under bite”. This means the lower part of her jaw protrudes further forward than the top.
