    Defaultdrooling

    Wondering if anyone else has had this problem with their dog. My 5 year old, Lexy, will just start excessive drooling and licking her leg. I think she licks leg because she slobbers it up so much. She does this every so often. And she will be fine in the morning. I checked her mouth to see if anything lodge in teeth. Just wondered if anyone else has experienced this.

    I sure haven't. I think anytime something changes like this, its a good time to call your vet.

    Mine have drooled when their stomach was upset. But it was infrequently. I would ask your vet if it is something that happens a lot.

    Worth talking to your vet. Is the drool caused by the licking? Rocky sometimes licks his shoulder and leg nearly obsessive compulsively. I had many follow up visits and saw a physio as this could be a sign of discomfort (pain) but nothing conclusive was found - all the vets said it was likely just something he may have started due to discomfort at some point and now just does it as a behaviour. Lots of licking like that can lead to extra drool.

    Bauer will drool excessively for hours if he eats too much snow, but not other times. The snow drool is horrible, there is a constant drip, and if I don't make him lay on a towel and wear a bib everything would be soaked. If you don't know what's causing it, I would definitely see the vet.

    Some people are like slinkies. Not really good for much, but bring a smile to your face when pushed down the stairs.
