Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hello my name is***** and I am a licensed veterinarian with over 9 years of experience. I am hoping to help you with your pet today. Since I can’t physically exam your pet, I may need to respond with several follow up questions so I can best help you. Remember there is no limit on how many questions you can ask to in order to clarify any information I have provided regarding your pet. I just have a few initial questions to ask to gather some more information if you don’t mind? Are you noticing any blood in the drool? Will Kalvyn let you look in his mouth?
Okay a common cause for drooling in cats is dental disease. You should either note an odor or see significant tartar on the teeth if he allows you to look at his mouth
Other issues to worry about is any type of mass in the mouth or if he has swallowed something irritating to his mouth
Okay did the drooling just start today? It is possible that he may have eating something that may have irritated him. If that is the case then the drooling should stop after a few hours. If that is not the case then some cats have to be sedated to get a good look in their mouth just to make sure nothing is way back there.
