My elderly dog has been drooling or dripping clear liquid…

Customer Question
Hi my elderly dog...

Hi my elderly dog has been drooling or dripping clear liquid from his nose and mouth periodically for years. He is outside when ever he can be. And he dips his nose in the snow grass etc. the vet suggested years amytriptyline which has worked for years. I only needed to give it once in awhile. Now yesterday within an hour ther was a puddle of clear liquid by him. What else can I give him.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. The Expert will know what to do with the drooling. What is the dog's name and age?

Copper and I’m happy to say his 13

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Copper?

We have talked about pulling his chipped teeth. I resisted at first. But his breath is also getting bad. They may be infected?
