Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
I am sorry to hear about Rocky's condition. Excessive drooling is often a sign of nausea but may also indicate that he may have eaten something that can cause irritation to the mouth and mucus membranes. Is there anything that he may have eaten or gotten into that you think would have irritated his mouth? If there is nothing caustic that he has or could have ben exposed to, I would think that he is nauseous and should be treated by a veterinarian. If there is not an emergency vet open in your area at this time, I recommend taking him to your vet in the morning. Does this help to address your concerns tonight? I am happy to answer your questions until you are satisfied.
