Customer Question

Hello, yesterday night I was petting my puppy, and as soon as I came near the left side of his jaw he whined . Today while I was walking him and my older dog, I noticed he was drooling but it looked like very very thick saliva . I am really scared because he looks really down and I tried to touch him on the same spot except this time it seems that it hurt way more as I barely touched him and he cried loudly. I am so scared please help
JA: I'll do all I can to help. The noise must be worrying. I'll connect you to the Veterinarian. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about your puppy?
Customer: My puppy is now 3 months old and I have yet to go get him his shots.

Hello, this could be a dental infection, fractured tooth, something he chewed on and got stuck in his mouth or even something puppies rarely get causing muscle inflammation. I would bring him in to a vet tonight if possible and make sure he is eating. If he will let you look in his mouth on the drooling side that would be a good idea, but since he hasn’t been in yet for his vaccines he should just go in asap.
