A six year old intact male Mongrel dog was brought to the hospital with the history ofsubmandibular swelling of approximately 15 centimetres in diameter for the past few months. Physical examination revealed single hard, painless mass and with the help of fine needle aspiration cytology, the condition was confirmed as salivary gland tumour. The animal was found to be fit for anaesthesia based on the laboratory diagnosis. Surgery was fixed and the tumour along with affected gland excision was done. Histopathological study confirmed the condition as salivary adenoma. Post surgically, the animal was kept under antibiotic, analgesic and wound dressing continued for seven days. The skin sutures were removed on 7th post-operative day and the animal made an uneventful recovery.
