Has anyone ever dealt with a swollen saliva gland in one of their dogs? I was working with my 16 month old female lab this morning and noticed a large golfball size lump under her jaw in her neck. I called the vet right away and went in. They of course thought it was 5 different things until they put a needle into it and sucked out saliva. The vet said it happens from a damaged duct in her mouth from something like chewing on a bone. His suggestion was to wait a few days to see if it went down on it's own, otherwise he said surgery was necessary to remove the gland since the duct is no longer functional. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
