No vomiting. Eyes kinda of watering and licking mouth non stop. Ate fine. Not legthargic. I did use carpet cleaner on some spots today but That’s the only chemical he would’ve been exposed to that was different.

1- Did she lick the carpet cleaner?

2- Can you open her mouth and see if there is anything stuck under the tongue, gums, or teeth?

Friend, drooling is a very nonspecific symptom and can be related to many different medical conditions. Common causes are oral discomfort (dental disease, a foreign body, infections), nausea, ingestion of a foreign body, or even part of a systemic disease to name a few causes. The excessive licking could be a sign of nausea or oral discomfort.

In this case, I would recommend a hands-on examination with your family veterinarian to pinpoint the exact underlying cause. In the meantime, you can start him on Pepcid AC (famotidine) 10mg 1/2 tablet every 12 hours. You can buy Pepcid AC over the counter in any pharmacy. The Pepcid AC will help if this is related to be nausea.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service. If you have any follow-up questions don't hesitate to ask. If finished, please take a moment to rate my service it is how I get compensated. See you again soon!
