Question by  rose56 (36)

What can I do about a heavy salivating dog?

It seems abnormal in my dog.


Answer by  kirri (478)

Salivating is completely normal in most dogs. Even in excess. Make sure your dog is hydrated at all times especially during the summers heat and that he always has access to shade.

A dog that is salivating may have a serious illness. Is your animal also drinking excessively? This could be something like diabetes, or a kidney problem. I would contact the vet asap.

Some dogs just slobber and drool a lot. It's normal. If the dog is begging for food or playing they drool more. If you really think there is a problem check with a vet to see if there is something wrong. Check for information about the breed online also.

Take it to the vet right away the dog may have rabies and sooner or later it will bit you and then you will have to go in and have a series of rabie shots they are not pleasant trust me. Or you can call the vet and tell them what the dog is doing and they will tell you.

If your dog is salivating heavily, it usually means that either the dog is in great pain in some area that you are not aware of or your dog has a dental problem. Do take him to a vet right away because salivating is a symptom of pain or discomfort.

Have your dog checked for GD, canine bloat, one of the symptoms of which is drooling. The stomach twists, trapping gas and air and preventing vomiting. It is serious.


Answer by  Valentine62 (2131)

He may have a bad or broken tooth that needs fixing or pulled. He could have gum problems or it just might be something he ate that he's allergic too. Some dogs will drool because that is their nature, but if that isn't the case here then a check up with a vet may prove to be significant.

Depending on the breed of your dog Drool could be just a characteristic. I have bullmastiffs and I find that a DROOL rag comes in handy at dog shows. Good luck.

Excessive salivation can be caused by many things, but one of them is very serious bloat... If you have any reason to suspect it is bloat, you need to take the dog to an emergency vet right away...
