    My 15 year old JRT has recently started chattering her teeth. Usually when she needs to go out or before feeding. Has this happened to anyone else’s dog and know this what could be a symptom of? She just had a recent vet visit and all her results were normal. She also has CKD which I try to control with diet.

    My Greyhound chatters when he’s excited (waiting for dinner, when he sees a rabbit etc). It’s normal for him. 🙂

    My JRT only chatters her teeth when she has scared the pee out of herself and then licks herself, probably no help.

    Chattering is usually a sign of anxiety or excitement. I’ve found that often older dogs do it more than younger dogs. I have no clue why that is, but my lab is proving it. When she was younger, she never did it. Now she will do it occasionally.

    Sometimes it means a male dog smells a “girl” dog….but that’s obviously not the case for you LOL
