An update! Took luigi to another vet. They heavily sedated him and then scoped his mouth and throte found a large abcess behind his jaw. They drained it and put him on antibiotics. He is sore but should heal up fine!

So pleased for you both poor Liigi, must have been in 'alot' of pain! As someone has said if only vets got the diagnosis right alot of time pain & frustration could be saved. Hope the AB's get to work soon & he's back to his normal self. good luck

Thats fantastic news, so happy the other vet found out what it is, must be an nightmare to see your hound in such pain. Hope he will be back in fine form really soon

Me too am happy that the cause of this has been sound, and treated. I hope he has an uneventful recovery now.

HOW I agree re vets getting a diagnosis right I've been on the receiving end of this since moving away from my brilliant vet both financially, emotionally and ultimately losing a much loved bitch. The end result may not have been any different (terminal cancer), but the getting there should have been.

If you have found a vet who can DIAGNOSE, then hang onto him/her. Rare as hens teeth, sadly

Thank you all! I agree with the finding good vets! The original vet i had luigi to is actually a personal friend as well but i use him mostly for my horses! He is amazing with them and a fantastic surgeon! Problem is he doesnt do emough small animal stuff anymore and it was his new vet, who is very new to vetting , that originally looked at luigi! My mistake was in not taking him to a small animal vet to begin with. I am lucky enough now to say i had 2great vets one for my large pets and one for my small.
