My hog, the mum, look to have swollen inside the mouth.

She still eating and drinking normally but sometime just lie down like without energy and i notice there are leftover food on the swollen part. I'm afraid she is choking so i use a cotton wool stick to take it out.

Sometime she just chewing or licking nothing when sitting there. Also look like she cannot close her mouth in full.

She just got treated for mites last Saturday. Going to review in 1 week and 2nd jab in 2 weeks time.

I don't think the mouth problem has to do with mites. I would say that it is more pressing to get her to the vet and then review for mites afterward. I assume you mean just checking for mites when you say that?
