Abstract: 

A four-month-old, female Border collie was presented with a firm swelling of the left mandibularbody. The most important differential diagnosis for this type of lesion in a young dog consists of adentigerous cyst, a papillary squamous cell carcinoma or an odontoma. Intra-oral radiographs weretaken and a biopsy was performed to reach a diagnosis. Histopathologic examination revealed acompound ondontoma and the dog was surgically treated. Follow-up showed uneventful healing of thewound and no signs of recurrence were visible on the three-month postoperative radiographs.
