Reason for coming to the rescue: This handsome boy was suspected to have Masticatory Muscle Myositis as well as crystals in his urine. MMM is an autoimmune disorder that attacks and breaks down the muscles in the face/jaw area. Those muscles are needed for chewing and typically we would use a high dose of steroids to ahead of the MMM and then keep them on a low dose for life to keep it under control. Fortunately we found out through Dr Shawn Thomas at Tanasbourne Emergency Clinic that he DID not have MMM. We are so grateful to Pacific Pug Rescue for helping this boy and reaching out to us to see if we could help.
