    DefaultSalivary cyst

    My 14 month yellow lab was recently diagnosed with a salivary cyst on the left side of his neck in the mandible region. It is about the size of a small plum and hard to the touch. My vet gave him antibiotics for a week to see if this will alleviate the situation but surgery was suggested as the next step if this didn't help. However, I am worried as I see reports that this is a risky and expensive surgery and I want to be as informed as possible...should I get a second opinion? Are there other alternatives? Has anyone had experience with this?

    No experience, and unsure of what the alternatives would be. Definitely start with the meds since it is the least invasive process and only a few days before you will see if it helps. But with anything involving a possibility of surgery, I would always get a 2nd opinion.

    I just heard that kind of cyst and I'm sorry for what your pup going through. Hope the medication would work perfectly and no need for surgery.
