Bottle Jaw Possible Sign Of Parasites
Dr. Ken McMillan
The common terms for what you describe are "bottle jaw" and "brisket edema." These conditions occur when protein levels in the blood are low. Albumin is a protein in the blood, and it acts like a sponge, keeping the fluid portion of the blood inside the blood vessels. Worms suck blood from the intestines leading to anemia and low protein. When excessive fluid leaks from the blood vessels, it tends to pool in the lower parts of the body.
