A sialocele is a cyst filled with a collection of mucoid saliva in the tissues surrounding a salivary gland.1 The most commonly affected salivary glands are the large ones under the jaw, called the mandibular salivary glands. The sublingual glands located under the tongue can also be affected. The cysts can become quite large and press against the animal's larynx or trachea, causing them to cough.

Surgical removal of the damaged gland and duct is the treatment of choice.
