My Siamese cat has an infected, swollen salivary gland and is in pain — 2 Comments

  1. Our kitten was just diagnosed with an enlarged salivary gland – this is an individual rescue kitten and we were having him examed prior to having him fixed due to the mass in his mouth, drooling and foul breath. Otherwise he is a lovable little guy, drinks and eats fine. We cannot afford fees for surgery, bloodwork, etc. Can they out grow something like this? Cali is approximately 6/7 months old.

    • Infections don’t usually just go away. You might want to try a home remedy. Virgin Coconut oil and plain pro-biotic yogurt might help. And of course, only very soft food.

      My research shows that no blood work, surgery or x-rays are needed, but it does need to be drained.

      If you can find an empathetic vet, and let them know your financial situation, and that this is a rescue kitty, hopefully they will treat him.
