so last night while parked on the couch the Pudden suddenly started drooling out of the left side of her mouth. It came on kind of suddenly and lasted all evening. It just kept dripping out and she spent the evening licking it off her feet and off the blanket. There've been two or three previous, but much briefer episodes of this. I didn't worry then, because I thought she probably just had food on her brain or something stuck between her teeth.

She hadn't eaten yet, so I don't think it was food stuck to her gums or anything. I looked all over the inside of her mouth and found nothing that looked unusual.

I don't think she had any pain, but she seemed slightly put off by the whole thing, and even came to me and stuck her head between my knees, which she always does when she wants Mama to make something better.

Later, when we went to bed, it stopped, and this morning she hasn't been drooling either.

Any idea what this is?

Was there something that could have been stressing her? Did she get into anything?

Does she take any kind of meds? If one doesn't get swallowed and melts in their mouth, it can make them drool for hours. It sounds like she is getting into something bitter tasting. Something she could be licking off her paws? Those are my ideas....

When my old girl had a cracked tooth, we didn't know until they did an x-ray because of some other issues she was having. It's just a thought. I wouldn't fret too much unless it happens again.

The only time mine have done that is when they got sick shortly afterwards. My Pawley did that this weekend when he was so sick. It was like a water faucet had been turned on.

Sounding like a bit of dietary distress. Maybe she's eaten, or you've fed her something out of the norm, and caused a bit of tummy troubles.

This may be disturbing but I was thinking about when Dudley used to get his seizures.....usually I never knew about it until it happened or had happened when I was out, but twice I caught him drooling about 10 sec before he went into a full blown seizure. The major cause in his case was corn gluten in ProPlan.

Taya had that for a while. I think she was nauseous. Sometimes we'd give her something for her tummy and it would settle down. Sometimes, nothing worked. We never did figure out what it was.
Now that we give her dogzymes with her food, she seems much better.

Daisy was like this awhile back, for one day. She definitely wasn't herself, and long strings of drool. I took her into the vet and they couldn't find anything. She was fine the next day, nothing like it again since. Have no idea what it was from Vet said maybe she had something stuck in one of her teeth or maybe her stomach was upset. I wish dogs could talk!

This happened to my first Charlie 1 she was the same i looked in her mouth checked her teeth out and could not see anything.
Took her to the vets he looked could not see anything but her breath was smelling a bit not much so he said we will have her in and he found a very tiny piece of bone wedged between her back teeth she was fine after he removed the bone it was really tiny as well.

Poor Pudden hope she is ok

thanks all....no drooling all day and then when parked on the couch after dinner she started up again. She was licking her feet the whole time too, and now I think maybe the licking came first and that's what stimulated the drooling?

Maybe she's getting neurotic in her old age....I should add we've had hideous 50 below wind chills for about a week now and we haven't gotten our normal amount of exercise....

I don't know enough to offer much advice, but I sure hope Pudden gets back to herself really soon.

It seems like the licking might stimulate drooling. if she seems like she is licking because she is itchy, you could try giving her a benedryl or two and see if that stops the licking, which might stop the drooling.

50 below? I can't imagine.....I've been in -34f in Vermont and that was enough.
Is it daylight there yet?

50 below windchills...only about 10 below without wind. And yep, plenty of daylight. We're never completely dark; even our shortest day has daylight from ca. 11 am to 4.30 pm.

Hopefully the Pudden is okay...she's one of my favorites on this board. I always look forward to hearing what she's been up to. Seems to me stress has been a factor which has brought on the excessive drooling you're referring to that I've seen in other dogs.

Possibly the high winds may have upset her? My last golden, Sammie, did not like the wind when she was left alone - for some reason it really freaked her out when she was inside. Out side she was fine with it. What ever it is hopefully she'll get over it soon.


My thoughts are with you,


Pete
