Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you both tonight

I am so sorry to hear your pet is showing these symptoms today...

The primary cause of drooling and licking lips is nausea in dogs. Other possible causes include an abscessed tooth, a foreign body such as a stick in the mouth, a mass orally, or ingesting something that is bitter or caustic. My concern being out in the heat even with access to fresh water is hyperthermia. CLICK HERE for more information on this condition in pets. If you are able to get a rectal temperature that would be ideal and if >103.5 please seek medical attention asap because this can become a life threatening situation.

I hope this information makes sense but please let me know how else I can assist you both today

Good evening, I wanted to check in on Panda Jack since you asked your question earlier. Is he doing alright? Did you take him to your veterinarian? I would love an update when you are able...
