I'll click call me but you have to call my landline...xxxx

Expert:  Dr. Gabby replied 2 months ago.

Thank you. The most common causes would be dental pain or nausea. So you have not seen him have any trouble chewing? Will he let you look in his mouth with a flashlight? Look for redness, loose teeth, tartar, bad odor

Expert:  Dr. Gabby replied 2 months ago.

I can not call right now but can opt out and allow other experts to call if available

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
I was waiting for a call and didn't notice the message. Are you still available to help me? I gave 500 ml sub Q fluids because he was dehydrated. Could the dehydration cause the drooling?
