    We have a 3yr old female rescue rottiexstaffie over the past 5 weeks she has had swelling in the left side of her snout. This has come and gone a bit, so initially we took her to the vet as she was swollen, clearly in pain and very lethargic, he gave her a steroid injection and off we went. Swelling subsided and all returned to normal. 10-12 days later back to the same, booked her in to go back, next day she sneezed and all was fine so we didn't take her. 2 weeks later same happens again, took her to the vet again, this time her temp was raised and they gave anti inflammatory and antibiotics, all was well and returned to normal. Got home at lunchtime today and she's back to being very subdued, shy and looks like a bit of swelling has returned again... Obviously I'm going to take her back to the vet and hope for scans but wondered if anyone else had experienced anything similar or may have any clues? We don't get bees or wasps around the house and garden, our garden is astroturfed and we purposefully walk not in long grass due to the other dog having allergies...

    I would expect the vet had investigated teeth and salivary glands (for stones).

    As far as I'm aware yes: the vet has done as thorough an examination as she could both times given the pain my dog was in... They said everything in her mouth looks fine

    This is a bit of a mystery. Good luck with any further investigations and please update if you get a diagnosis.

    I will do, that k you at the minute she's okay in herself and doesn't seem in pain so I will wait to take her to the vet I think. However this morning she was obsessively scratching her snout... Not sure if I should be worried about that?

    I’d be worried about a grass seed so if she’s no better in a couple of days it might be necessary to sedate her for a thorough inspection.
