• My dog started excessively drooling all of a sudden. What should we look for, watch for, or do?

    Hi Alec,
    If the drooling has continued I recommend that you take him into see a veterinarian as soon as possible. Excessive drooling can be a sign of nausea or a swallowing issue. Your vet can talk to you more about the cause after they have examined him. They may recommend some lab tests and/or x-rays to help diagnose or rule out certain diseases. The treatment that he needs will depend on the underlying cause of the symptoms.
