    Sudden drooling could be a variety things:
    - anxiety/stress
    - something wrong with a tooth/gum, do a full check of the mouth
    - upset tummy, gas, or the more serious bloat.

    If there is no reason for the dog to be anxious (no storm, unusual activity, etc.), and you do a full check of the mouth and see nothing there, I would call the vet. They may suggest using something to calm the tummy but I would recommend chatting with them first. An E-Vet should be able to answer your question now and give you signs to look for to decide if you should bring her in or wait.

    That is good to know, things have been really stressful around here with visiting family. One other thing worrying me is that she won't eat her food. Will the stress cause this too?

    has she pooped? I would really recommend a chat with a vet, maybe they can give you some tips on the phone. My biggest fear with drooling and such is bloat. Is she uncomfortable? Unable to settle?

    Yes stress can cause some dogs to not eat. Is this unusual level of stress? have you had people visiting before? If so how was she then?

    Could the guests maybe be feeding her things?

    She does act stressed, and 2 of the visitors are under 3 years old and they love to feed her everything. She does poop at her regular times still.

    Not to stress you but our almost 11 year old lab who was a pretty big time drooler (only around food) had increased drooling - knew something wasn't right when she was drooling just to drool - she was diagnosed with oral squamous cell carcinoma.

    I hope it's just stress...

    I call them Slobradors any more.

    Ruby is a droller (around food) and she can't drink without getting it anywhere.
