Re: Salivary Glands
We are meeting to dicuss options, including just draining it, or drain it and creating another drain via an incision . There are two vets in this office and the 2nd opton is the one that she suggests. She said if it were her dog this is the course of action she would take.
Glad to hear that draining worked for you, this gives me hope.
After we meet on Wed. I will be looking for a 2nd opinin. I've been with this vet office for over 20 years and have always respected them.
Now I'm playing the " should have game". Should I have returned her when I discovered the spot on her tongue? Not a good game to play and I need to stop beating myself up. When I got her she also had an umbilical hernia, which I knew at purchase, the spot on her tongue, which I didn't see unitl a the next day after taking her home, and now this. I did email my breeder and she says that all the other puppies are doing fine, in fact, she kept her brother for showing/breeding.
The cost of the surgery is one thing, and I'll let my husband freak out about that one if we go that route. The thought of "major surgery" is what is freaking me out.
