Hello and thank you for your question. I am a Veterinary Nurse with over 15 years experience and I have assisted in the care of many pets with this particular medical concern. It would be my pleasure to assist you today. Is it possible for me to obtain some additional information from you about your companion?

1) What breed of dog is your companion and now old?
2) What was happening before the panting and drooling began?
3) Any vomiting or acting like he's going to vomit?
4) Is he eating or drinking?
5) Any distention of the abdomen?
6) How long ago did this all start?
