Hello and thank you for your question. I am a Veterinary Nurse with over 15 years experience and I have assisted in the care of many pets with this particular medical concern. It would be my pleasure to assist you today. Is it possible for me to obtain some additional information from you about your companion?1) Do you have any pictures to share of the swelling on his face? 2) Video of the "wet" sound you're hearing? 3) When was the last time that Apollo had blood work performed? 4) When was the last time that he had a dental cleaning performed, if needed? 5) Any licking, chewing or scratching?
