Craniomandibular Osteopathy (CMO) is a developmental bone disorder that causes bony lesions on the skull. Occurring in West Highland White Terriers, Scottish Terriers and Cairn Terriers, it is caused by an incompletely dominant mutation to the gene SLC37A2.
CMO begins manifesting in affected dogs between 4 and 8 months of age. Signs include swelling of the jaw, difficulty opening the jaw, pain, a lack of apetite and periodic fever. Bony lesions develop on the skull, mainly on the jawbone. Symptoms usually recede when the dog has finished its growth period.
