Hi, Dr. W here. I'm sorry to here about this :(

Drooling usually means nausea in dogs. The groaning and weakness makes me think he is painful(coupled with the drooling, it makes me think abdominal pain). Has he eaten anything he shouldn't have lately (last 3 days)?

If this continues I would take him to the vet to get some x-rays and blood work to see what is going on.
