Hello,
I'm having the same problem with my 4 year old boar Cookie after having his molars filed down by my exotic vet. His jaw is hanging slack and he's struggling to eat so we're assist feeding him. He's desperately trying to eat his veggies and nuggets but just can't seem to manage biting or chewing. It looks like the chin sling would be perfect, I've tried the email address but they're not answering, does anyone have the pattern they could share? I have a machine and can sew so I could make one tonight if I could get a pattern!

Thank you,

Cookie and Sarah 🐾xxx

Do you think the jaw was dislocated? Hanging slack may indicate a problem.
Pinta invented the chin sling (it is patented). She sells a pattern reasonably.

You can read about my successful experience helping a pig with jaw muscle problems here.

Whether you get the chin-sling pattern or use my massage/exercise technique, be sure that your pig is getting enough food and not losing much weight! Hand-feed aggressively if necessary.

SarahBBB, I split your question (wrongly posted on an old topic) off to its own topic.
