Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

I was just wondering if any of your dogs has an overbite? Nakota does, he is 10 weeks old. I just want to know how it gets in the future and if they had to get any procedures done. We will be going to the vet very soon to see what they have to say as well.

Hayden has a slight overbite, but it doesn't effect him, nor did our vet suggest us to do anything about it.

The only way I would think a vet would suggest anything for it, is if it was causing the dog pain or was impairing his/her ability to eat properly.

Sorry to hear that.


There was at least one topic on the matter with a couple of people chiming in on at least this one example and what you could maybe expect later on in life Smile

It's a Husky Thing - 10 week old puppy with severe overbite. Advice?


Hope it helps Smile

Okay thank you! His overbite isn't really that bad, the only time you see it is when you tilt his head up. Hopefully it doesn't cause him any problems in the future. He seems fine eating and everything at the moment. Thanks!

Slight overbite is not a big deal as long as the dog isn't being shown or planning to be bred. A more serious overbite or 'parrot' mouth where you can stick a finger in the gap may be debilitating as the dog ages

My Panzer dog has a sever overbite. I can put a finger in her gap. A couple people told me Id never get her to eat normal, etc etc. She's has been fine.

Tha major issue to watch for is a condition where one half of the nose grows longer than the other, and causes the upper jaw to twist. Other than that, it usually isn't anything but a small aesthetic defect.
