Customer Question
She is drooling from...

She is drooling from one side of her mouth. Thin, water saliva in a near constant drip. Otherwise does not seem to be in discomfort.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. The Expert will know what to do with the drooling. What is the dog's name?

Kenya

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Kenya?

She is predominantly indoors, but I kept her outside for a couple hours tonight while I had friends over

Hello. My name is***** and I am a veterinarian that can answer your question. I understand Kenya is salivating excessively. I am sorry to hear about that. This can be a sign of nausea or mouth pain. Are you able to take see if there is an infected tooth or something in the mouth?

I tried to look a bit with a flashlight. Didn't see anything obvious, but her gums might be a little red.
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
She is well overdue for a teeth cleaning, but I was just worried because the drooling started after her being outside for a couple hours.
Dog Veterinarian: Scott Perry, Dog Veterinarian replied 7 months ago

Drooling can also be caused by nausea, which can occur after a mild allergic reaction, pain, or eating something not part of the regular diet. If it is not from mouth pain then treatment with Benadryl for 3-5 days should be effective. The dose for Benadryl is 2 mg per pound of body weight if treating for an allergy. It is a very safe medication and can be given as needed. You may also want to consider feeding a low fat diet such as boiled chicken, white rice, or sweet potatoes in case this is a situation of nausea. You can feed that for 3-5 days as well. If the drooling continues after 72 hours then it would be best to have her evaluated by a veterinarian. I hope that helps.
