Pitbull drooling from left side of mouth. What could it be?

My 5 year old pitbull Saban has been drooling nonstop for the past 24 hours. Its like a dripping faucet, but only on the left side of his mouth. I've checked his teeth, gums and jaw and everything is fine. He has been drinking water and he is acting normal. His nose is dry and warm. His over all body temperature feels normal. When he is outside he occasionally tends to eat grass. Could this be a reaction from chemicals? And if so, does he need to see a vet?

My dog was diagnosed with paralysis on one side (similar to

My dog was diagnosed with facial paralysis on one side (similar to the human version of Bells Palsy). He is a Bull Mastiff and 10 years old. In generally good health.On consult he was not found to have an ear infection and bloods were taken to check his thyroid. That test came back ok. We were given a course of Prednisone and he has finished that. He also has eye drops which we are still administering.It has been 4, nearly 5 weeks now and there has been no recovery.It was our understanding that this may never come right if it hasn't within 6-12 weeks. He seems ok in himself. Is this something we should really be following up with more tests, or is he ok to just carry on like this. Is there anything we can do - supplements?Should we investigate further? Thank you
