    Default My 7 year old girl has a swollen toungue

    I started noticing her tongue was visible on the right side of her mouth with her mouth closed. I've also noticed the last few days when she drinks from her water bottle that a bunch of water is falling to the floor. Today I really inspected to find the swelling. At first I thought she was just holding her tongue that way but there's a problem. What could be causing this? I love her so much and I'm just scared to death!

    Can you post up a photo of her teeth and tongue? Can you see that her teeth look the normal length?

    Also, has something new been added to her diet recently?

    Is it possible that she chewed on something she shouldn't have?

    There might be some sort of irritation or allergic reaction.

    OK, I was finally able to get a couple of photos of her. She's still very active. Nothing new in her diet lately. She hasn't been cleaning herself for a couple months and I now realize that it's because of her tongue. I have an exotic vet local but they don't really know how to handle her. But now I should be able to go in with her and I can hold her. I'm so frickin worried about this!
