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?
