Ask a Vet and Get Your Veterinary Questions Answered.
Good Morning and welcome. I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
Usually these symptoms in the garden are caused by licking something such as a cleaning agent, bleach or insecticide. The best treatment is to wash out her mouth 2-3 times with fresh water and then watch her for any other signs. If this has passed, then she may have a mild digestive disturbance from this so have your daughter only feed her a small amount of rice and chicken and give her Pepcid AC at 0.5 mg per pound every 8 hrs for a day or 2 to be sure she is doing well.
If she starts vomiting, then have your daughter take her to your vet to be sure we have not missed something.
In most cases, this localized irritation causing the excessive salivation and shaking will pass as long as you can get it all washed from her mouth.
Does that make sense to you?
Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please Reply so I can clarify for you

don't use any insecticides/chemicals, bleach and the like aren't in the garden but it is hot today and I don't know how long she was outside. Grass has got really long and there are some stinging nettles out there and my daughter said she was trying to eat grass earlier.
Thank you so much for your kind rating. It is very much appreciated! Do not hesitate to contact me with any other concerns that you may have about your girl's condition. I am happy to help if anything changes. If you have other questions, please Reply.
Have a great day!!
Hi Dr. L, She seems to be fine no further problems kept her in for a couple of days but she's a typical Labrador nothing puts her off her food! Thanks for the follow up :o)
