Question:
 What is the most likely diagnosis in this 11 year-old female Yorkshire Terrier with bilateral oral masses.


Answer:
 Sublingual Granuloma (also know as gum chewer lesions).

Differential diagnosis would include neoplastic and inflammatory lesions.

Answer: 
Excessive sublingual mucosa may be present in individual small breed dogs. If considerable in size, this tissue is traumatized when the patient chews causing proliferation to progress.
