I am sorry to hear Cooper is drooling. How long has he been doing it?

Is he able to drink, and swallow?

Dog Veterinarian: Rebecca, Dog Veterinarian replied 7 months ago

Dog will drool with mouth pain or an injury in the mouth, nausea, or if they can't swallow.

How long has he been drooling?

I usually start with an exam of the mouth and throat when I see a dog that is drooling a lot.

If he is able to drink and eat and swallow, you could try some Pepcid AC for nausea to see if that helps. How much does he weigh?

I hope you were able to see my response; I have not heard back from you!

How is Cooper doing? Please let me know if this was helpful or if you have any other questions.
