Hypersialism in Good Dogs

Health
A drooling dog
Hello, CEO Olivia here. Today’s topic is a wet one so you made need a towel. BOL! All dogs drool to some degree, it’s just natural. But sometimes it can become an issue. Hypersialism is when a good dog salivates excessively as a result of the saliva glands producing too much saliva. The excessive moisture can lead to inflammation as well as irritation around the dog’s mouth.
Excessive salivation can be caused by a number of things such as
  • infectious diseases
  • Irritation from an object that might be stuck in the mouth
  • An injury to the mouth
  • Certain medications
  • Allergies
  • Poisoning
  • Seizures
Some dogs are just drooly by nature & there’s no cause for worry. But if your good dog suddenly appears to be drooling more than usual, you should see your vet as soon as possible for a proper diagnosis.  Your vet will determine the cause & treat it accordingly.
Myself, I’m a lady & ladies don’t drool. Well, not much 😉
