Doberman Drooling non-stop


I rescued a male Doberman 2 yrs ago from a rescue gp. He was estimated to be around 5 yrs old. He came with alot of health problems but after TLC/Vet visits he has overcame his health issues.

The last 6 mths he has non-stop drooling at least once every 2 weeks... I consulted a vet about it and she did not raise any concerns.

When he starts drooling like this... it's non-stop and forms a puddle where he is laying down... It goes on pretty much the whole day. Magically it stops the next day.

Anyone can shed their experience with such issues will be helpful to know what I could do for him.

I appreciate your response.

Thk You

Hi shine...

Has your vet checked out periodontal (gum) disease or a tooth abscess?

Also, certain meds have, upon occasion caused my boys to drool. My 5 year old was once prescribed the pain killer Tramadol and he drooled like crazy. But, he is a serious Pavlov type of drooler! When he is around food or treats, I had better have a towel handy. LOL

Best to you and your boy.

Good morning Shine and welcome to DT .

I will just throw a few ideas as to what I have seen with ours over the years - lol

It's funny that it only happens just once in awhile in a 2 week period , so one thing I have seen here on the farm is - sometimes they will go out and will sneak a few bits of grass - they get it caught in there front teeth or a back one - come in and they are drooling - I go and pull the grass out and all's fine .

2. Cooking some foods - they will sit there with there heads in the air smelling = and start to drool .

3. had this happen only one time ! Mr. Business thought it would be great to eat a Woolly worm ! That poor boy drooled terrible for hours , I did call the Vets office and was informed that the hairs on a wooly worm stick to there tongue - roof of there mouth which caused the drooling by the bucket full's

4. one of the best for super drool with Mr. B . is string cheese ! One day when the Mrs. was in the back of the house , I got a piece of cheese for me - But when I turned around - I had these " EYES " looking back at me - What was I suppose to do ? - SO I did the only thing I could do , I gave him a piece , Wife came in and asked what did I feed him ? I told her and asked --- How did you know ? She said look at the carpet - lol

I would think if there was something really wrong - Your boy would be doing it all the time ,, but that's just me thinking out loud .

Best of luck

I'd be concerned, personally. That seems very abnormal. I'd be checking for some kind of dental abnormality for sure, as 4X4 mentioned. I have a really good relationship with my vet...I never feel dismissed, so I hope you have that kind of relationship, too. Even if we can't figure out what's going on, we work together to figure out whether we need to keep pursuing it, find a specialist, decide whether it's just a mystery, etc.

You might start tracking what he's eating and doing if it's that regular and you and your vet aren't able to find a physical cause. As ECIN mentioned, it could be something environmental, although the amount of drool you describe is above and beyond what I've seen.

My mom and dad's dog had Megaesophagus and he drooled a lot. Way more than was normal for a GSD. Not saying that's what this is, but something else to think about.

I'm guessing you've already seen this, but for people who want to maybe look into it for themselves:
