I will ask my vet about this. Bell's Palsy and FNP may be comparable but unfortunatley they are not the same. However we have had a big increase in the amount of Lyme's in the past year, so always worth asking about. Nearly all of the time the cause of FNP is idiopathic.

So, the vet doesn't think it's a tumor or anything serious which is causing this? From your post, it sounds like pretty good news...that the underlying cause may not be anything to worry about. My best wishes to you guys. If it's only a matter of a little extra drool, he's well worth it.

Doberluv, my vet believes that if anything it will be related to the thyroid. She did say that we could do an MRI, but that she did not think it necessary because tumors are VERY RARELY the problem. Of course there are things that we should watch for that would indicate a need for an MRI, and you can be sure I'll be keeping watch over that. So until we see anything change we are going with the whole if it quacks like a duck, swims like a duck...

Thanks Bailey08!
