Swelling of the Salivary Gland in Dogs
Antibiotics are often used to help reduce inflammation and to help prevent the formation of an infection. The most common form of treatment is the non-surgical draining of the swollen area(s).
Living and Management
Cleaning the area surrounding the drain placement and changing bandages daily will help your dog recover quickly, as well as reduce the likelihood of any infection developing. Overall, the prognosis of this medical condition is positive.
There are currently no known preventative measures for oral or salivary mucoceles.
