Mac is about the same. Drooling isn’t as excessive but he is still drooling and still won’t come to me he acts like he wants to drink water but isn’t

Okay

Would you feel more comfortable having him examined?

I would

What is your best guess Dr. Paul that he’s eaten something toxic ?

Best guess is that he ate something and it causing irritation in his mouth

Not toxic per se

You can try giving something really tasty to eat and see if we can get the taste out of mouth

Well he’s eaten some steak but doesn’t want to drink. I watch him for a bit longer and see if things change. He acts a bit paranoid

Okay
