We have my daughters dog visiting. He is a 10 year old

Customer Question

We have my daughters dog visiting. He is a 10 year old dauchand. Yesterday he started drooling a thick saliva and is really jittery. Usually a friendly dog, he is avoiding us (we had to chase him down last night to get him in his kennel with his sister. He was so jittery, we left him out in the laundry room and this morning for he had pooped and peeed on the floor - unusual for him). Now he remains jittery and continues to salivate the thick, clear mucus like substance.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know what to do with the drooling. What is the dog's name?
Customer: Cooper and he is still very jittery
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the dog?
Customer: He has a history of gum and teeth problems. My daughter remarked that he has lost a number of teeth.
