Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
She is not spayed, her last cycle was April. No change in diet. She only new treat is a couple of days ago I gave her a shortbread cookie made for dogs. My husband may have given her a pizza crust last night but that hasn't bothered her before. I am unable to take a temp. no diarrhea or vomiting. Her gums seem to be a normal healthy pink color. She does have a steady stream of drool, granted its not bad but typically she drools is she's hungry or gets excited.
Thank you for the additional information.Drooling can be due to nausea, dental problems, trouble swallowing or stress ( are there thunder storms in the area) just to name a few things.If she is not eating she may be having some stomach upset. It could be due to the pizza crust or just like humans that can get upset stomach for no known cause.You could try Pepcid AC to see if this helps settle her stomach. This is dosed at 0.25 mgs per pound of body weight every 12 hours. I would wait 30 minutes after the Pepcid and see if she will eat something bland such as boiled chicken or hamburger with boiled rice, scrambled egg, cottage cheese.If you do not have Pepcid, then Pepto bismol can be used at a dose of 1 teaspoon per 20lbs of body weight every 6-8 hours.I would check in her mouth look for any broken teeth, swollen gums or anything stuck in the roof of her mouth.I would also try to get a temp. Normal is 100.5-102.5 anything over 103.5 or under 100 requires immediate medical care.If this continues for more then 24 hours I would suggest having her seen by your vet.I hope this helps. Please reply back if you have additional questions or concerns and I will be happy to continue.Candy
