    Default DROOL! splat

    EEEEEEk! No one told me that Cavies DROOL! My Boston always did, but now I looked down at Nina girl and drool was dripping out of the corners of her mouth. Then running down her throat on to her name tags, and on to her ears before splattering on the floor....Do you think maybe she wanted some pizza?

    I would urgently ring a vet! That is not normal and generally would indicate she may have eaten something poisonous. Even when they drool due to nervousness or interest in food it is not remotely at that level in any normal cavalier I have ever seen.... I'd ring for advice immediately.

    Thanks for your consern Karlin, I may have exagerated just a little bit. When my pizza was gone, and she and Cooper had there small bite, she stopped. She is fine now curled up with Cooper next to me.

    There has been many times when Buster was on my lap while I was eating my food.

    I would get up and feel the dampness!

    Skippy had an episode of drooling which lasted 1.5-2 weeks a few months ago. We checked his teeth and gums, thought about what he could possibly have eaten, monitored his behavior, but were clueless. After a few days or so then brought him to the vet when things weren't improving. The vet couldn't figure it out either. A few days later, his drooling stopped. Weird!

    Molly drools if you are eating something she wants but it is not that bad. On one occassion Dougall Drooled a lot, I got him to the vet immediately, we think he had picked something up on the walk or he was jumping all over Molly who had that morning been frontlined and of course that is toxic. So, if it is excessive I wouldn't take a chance!

    So drooling is not normal? Had been wondering as the last 2 walks I have taken her on she has had doggy slobber at the end of them. No other time that I have noticed though.

    They do sometimes drool on a walk, if they get hot or just from excitement.

    Frequent drool can be a symptom of PSOM http://cavalierhealth.org/psom.htm


    Obviously sudden onset serious drooling can be a sign of something seriously wrong, as Karlin says above.
