Greetings, and thanks for the question.
Sorry to hear about Carry's condition. I've got a few questions to ask you so that I might offer you a more complete answer:
1): How long has this condition been present?
2): Is Carry able to eat and drink?
3): Is the drooling coming from the mouth, nose, one nostril???
4): Has he had anything unusual to eat recently (that he isn't used to eating), such as grain, apples, carrots? Does he wolf down his food?
5): Is there any foul odor associated with the drooling?
6): How is Carry acting otherwise?
Thanks, ***** ***** looking forward to hearing from you.
