Hello and thank you for usiing this site to help you. I am sorry Stella is not feeling well.

Can you tell me please, could she have gotten into garbage?

Does she eat any rawhides, greenies, or other non food items?

Does she eat any fatty human food?

What color are her gums?

She is never out alone - she eats Blue Chicken and Rice, Blue training treats and piece of cheese (size of quarter or smaller).....her gums are pink, but the drool is crazy and she has been rubbing her face on the rug

Thank you for that information. Drooling can come when a dog feels nauseous, however the fact that she is rubbing her face on the rug and drooling that much I would suggest you do a finger sweep of the mouth and check it with a flashlight to be sure there is nothing stuck in the teeth and no ulcers or sores in the mouth.

If this is just stomach upset then withholding food for 24 hours then starting a bland diet of boiled chicken and cooked white rice can help.

You can offer her ice cubes or small bits of water to keep her hydrated.

Her gum color is good and if you have a thermometer I would keep an eye on temperature rectally. Normal for dogs is 100.5 and 102.5
