Customer Question

I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Your post is puzzling. Can you please clarify "excessive saliva with an infection"? Your dog is hypersalivating because an infection has been identified and is causing the hypersalivation or is an infection being hypothesized? Inflamed lymph glands (lymphadenopathy) can arise secondary to systemic infections, immune-mediated disorders, and lymphoma.
