Okay, so Gabs started drooling this morning on the couch - huge, globby, strings of it that left puddles (and she is not a drooler. This went on for an hour and a half in total.
I kept an eye on her (she was sitting next to me) - but she really didn't seem to want much to do with me for a little while. I read one case; then took her outside (thinking maybe she had to go to the bathroom); the huge strings of drool continued.
I left her alone (but next to me) for an hour or so while she drooled- just occasionally wiping the drool - and then decided maybe she was off because our routine had been off due to the ten inches of snow. So I took her to the training club and she was just...weird...on the drive over. She's normally alert on the way over, and sleepy on the way back. She was sleepy on the way over and sleepy on the way back.
Anyway, she was fine once we got there, and the drool eventually stopped. But she's laying on the floor instead of the couch (never does this).
So...being the paranoid person that I am, I am concerned that she had a mild/petit mal seizure. thoughts?
Is she eating normally? Nausea?
I just did a quick google search and couldn't find much information on excessive drooling during the period of time immediately following a seizure (during the seizure, yes.) Both of my boys have, in varying degrees, had seizures. Neither followed with excessive drooling. But, that doesn't mean its not possible.
I hope Gabby is ok.

Could she have an upset tummy? I know they say dogs will drool if the are nauseated. I hope she is feeling better now.
I'll have to let you know- we have a vet appt. at 7:20.
Any news on Gabs yet, Laura?
Any news? I hope everything is A-OK!

Hey, thanks for asking! You too Felicia!Originally Posted by CaliforniaLabLover
We had a vet appt and the vet ran late so it took a long time.
The vet thought it was either a small seizure or other neurological event. The vet is running a full blood panel to see if anything turns up.
We're just going to keep an eye on her for now and hope that it was a one time thing
Keeping fingers and paws crossed here that it was a one time deal.
Bellyrubs to MissGabs!
I hope it was just a one time event too. I've heard of them drooling a lot with an upset stomach too.
The only time mine drool like that is if I'm eating something they want...lol
It's not the right time of year for this but eating certain insects, frogs and toads can cause excessive drooling too.
