The past couple months my 10'yr old Boston terrier started having neck problems. Lethargic and trouble eating. It seemed as if his lymph nodes were swollen. He had different laser treatments on his neck and antibiotics. We did a biopsy on lymph node and came back that it's actually an enlarged salivary gland.
He also has Cushings and diabetes insipidus. And allergies.
What can I do for an enlarged salivary gland. I havent gotten much info for my vet on this as she thinks his issues eating are Cushings but I know they aren't. (we made sure he wasn't going into addisons) I read online with enlarged salivary gland, they have issues eating. We seem to be spending $1000 monthly on our dog ($350 month in meds, plus food and appts trying to get him better). He's happy, there's life in him but he not interested in eating. Eventually he eats a bit but Ira a struggle. We've tried different foods, we add wet food, I've added yogurt, potatoes, you name it
I've read surgery is often required
we can't really afford that at this moment and I'm not sure he's strong enough....
Anyone been through this with their dog?
