Reply to Terri Riba's Post: It was more like drool. He wasn't outside, or aything. He didn't ingest anything. It came out of nowhere, but now he seems fine.
Expert:  Terri replied 11 years ago.
Dear friend,
It sounds like he either licked something disagreeable or felt nauseated.
If he seems fine now just keep a very sharp eye on him.
I would also inspect the inside off his mouth for any foreign objects or sores to make sure he has nothing stuck there.
Please let me know how he is later.
If you need any more help, please do not hesitate to ask.
Best wishes,
