• My boxer is excessively drooling and I do not know why. He does not typically drool like this and I am very concerned. It is just leaking out if his mouth. What should I do?

    Hi Monique,
    If the drooling has continued I recommend that you take him into see a veterinarian. Drooling like you are describing can be caused by a few different things including nausea, an injury to the mouth, dental disease, or even something that is preventing normal swallowing. Your vet can talk to you more about the cause of the drooling and the treatment he needs after they have examined him.

Need more information or advice?
