    My goat Leo a 2 year old nigerian dwarf just came back from the vet. I thought he had an absessed tooth or a piece of hay stuck in the side of his cheek. It turns out he has a pocket of saliva that the vet took a sample from and tested. No infection just saliva. They don't want to drain it because the vet thinks that will just make him produce even more. Has anyone ever heard of this before?

    Is it a salivary cyst? I've had a goat with one of those...nothing you can do for it really.
