    I can't thank you enough! For the past month, my bulldog has been having the jaw issue and we thought it was seizures! I found this thread from a random google search, after reading those comments on that video I mentioned it to my vet. He Looked deep in my bullies mouth and sure enough there were four ulcers deep in the back. After further testing, the official diagnosis is Eosinophilic Granuloma which is the same as on that video. It is very common in cats but apparently rare in dogs. This thread was one of the only places I found mentioning this after hours and hours of research, thanks again! Course of action now is Prednisone and will be doing food testing as my vet thinks the problem is from food allergies.
