    Sorry not much help with the jaw clicking, I hope it's simply a growing phase, just had to say how adorable she is.

    Update after vet visit

    I took Luna to the vet today and its all good news. Her jaw is in the correct position with normal movement and her teeth are all aligned as they should be, with a good bite, no inflammation or signs of any dental or soft tissue issues. The vet says that it is not unheard of for dogs to grind and click their teeth when teething. Luna has all her adult incisors ( didn't notice that happening ! ) and is now pushing through her big canines, which in turn has pushed her deciduous canines lower down. So basically, to quote the vet " her teeth are bugging her and her mouth feels funny".
    As long as she continues to eat well, chew toys without issues, etc, I am to just monitor it. If its still going on in 2 months time, or once her permanent teeth are in, then she will have a follow up with x-rays.

    Such a happy momma :)
