Xerostomia: A Treatment Feasibility Study in Dogs

Xerostomia: A Treatment Feasibility Study in Dogs Abstract • An acute study was performed in dogs to test the feasibility of using another bodily fluid in place of saliva in patients with xerostomia. Chyle was routed from the thoracic duct to the oral cavity via a vein graft using the external jugular vein. While technically challenging, the vein conduit worked well in delivering chyle to the oral cavity.
