Q. I noticed a bubble/blister under the tounge of my great Pyrenees. It is soft in nature and she is still eating well.

Answered By

A. It may be a small cyst coming from the salivary gland under the tongue.

If she is eating fine and not showing signs of pain, I would suggest to monitor the blister in the next days/weeks.

It may regress spontaneously or it may become bigger. In that case it could be painful and I would recommend to take her to your veterinarian for a check up.
