  1. Head muscle atrophy

    Hello there fellow Pit Bull owners/lovers I am searching for info on aging Pit bulls, my female is 10 and along with a bout of Lymes disease has over the past few months developed muscle atrophy on the left side of her looks caved in. She seems fine but I am concerned.

    Welcome - have you taken er to the vet, and what wre his/her comments?

  3. Yes, the vet said muscle atrophy but did not know why it was one sided...said it had nothing to do with the Lymes .

    Any ideas and thanks for the reply.

    Welcome. :)

  7. I have experiencing the same thing with my 7 year old female - left side of her big pitbull head just caved in. We have done a biopsy, and she has been on antibiotics for weeks with no results. They initially thought it was a bacteria. They are now researching Masticatory Muscle Myositis and have put her on Prednisone (steroids).
