    She thinks it’s a salivary mucocele which is when the salivary glad gets injured or clogged. It’s producing too much saliva with no where to go. Leading to the cyst type thing. I looked it up after she mentioned it and that does fit it exactly. But I’ll feel better after he’s seen by a vet.

    Good! Like mentioned it is bigger than what I was picturing before the photo. Just keep an eye on it but definitely a vet is needed. I know it’s hard but try to stay calm..Brutus needs a calm momma....Do keep us posted...

    I’m trying to stay calm! At least I know it’s not life threatening or anything. I am worried about surgery on such a young puppy but I’m going to do research and ask lots of questions. Hopefully it’s something that can at least wait a month or two. I’d feel better about surgery at 6 months instead of 4. She also mentioned doing brachycephalic correction at the same time, so he doesn’t need to be under twice. Ugh so much to think about and research. I’ll update after the appointment!

    We just went through something similar with our Frenchie... swollen/infected saliva gland, his was below in neck, kind of, we addressed it with anti-inflammation and steroids, took about 10 days to clear up.

    Oh interesting! I wonder if we can find a way to get rid of it without surgery. The vet seemed to think surgery was the only option to completely get rid of the issue. But Iím looking into a second vet with good recommendations to get a second opinion if needed.

    Second opinion is always worth it. Cheli's issue was under the chin, we could not see any thing in his mouth

    There isn’t really issues with his breathing. He snores but he’s a bulldog so that’s normal, it’s not even loud. I’ve actually never seen him pant. Even on a brisk walk he seems perfectly fine. But she said he could develop problems as he gets older and opening the nares and cutting the palate would help, keep him from developing problems.

    Sorry but your vet is thinking of her wallet n not yours. If’s, could, probably, maybes, cause he’s a bulldog.......errrrr no. Not in my book. I’m not saying “maybe” he might need it one day and on the other hand, maybe not. I know a lot of people with EB not one has went through any surgeries. Nights Duke n Nyala snores like hell. Don’t mean they need to have surgery.

    I can understand the nares if they are tight, but palate should be evaluated first not just done...
