Teeth Spurs

Has anyone dealt with this problem with their chins? Anyone have any information on it?

Ok well I think Ami has them. I rubbed underneath her jaw and felt two sharp points, one on each side. She eats fine, other than not much interest in hay – and doesn’t seem to be in any pain. So I'm trying to figure out what it could be.

Well, she's eating fine and I saw her finally gnawing on a hay cube last night - so maybe it's not spurs after all - she seems absolutely fine!!

I was wondering this in my 9-year old, Polgara. I felt sharp points under her jaw and had the vet run x-rays and a thorough exam on her- no spurs, perfectly healthy teeth, just a rather jutting jaw bone. What I was feeling was the back of her jaw. You may want to get tests done, too, but I thought I'd give you some hope!
