Jesse came into the clinic yesterday for her weekly session. Her owner and friend, Linda, indicated that Jesse’s hearing keeps getting better and better each day. I have continued to work on the jaw muscles inside of Jesse’s mouth along with her teeth and gums, massaging gently along with using gentle pressure to release trigger points that I find. I wasn’t sure if her hearing was better until we were standing outside while I worked on her and a Raven cawed off in the distance as he flew by and Jesse perked up her ears, turned her head toward the sound and looked. Linda and I giggled. Of course, hearing loss in animals is not always due to tight jaw muscles; however, in this instance it is greatly benefiting Jesse to regain some of what she has lost.
