Q: Cause for sudden excessive drooling

Last night my dog Ceirra started to excessively drool. We checked her mouth and it looks fine. Except for her usual broken tooth but the vet told us when we got her not to worry about it. Ceirra never drools. Now it's non stop dripping. Our poor puppy is always covered in her drool. In one swipe of her mouth up against something it looks like someone spilled a drink. It always looks like she just got done drinking a lot of water.(We know for sure it's not caused by that) Every where she goes there's a path of her drool that follows. When she's just laying down it's still dripping from her mouth making a puddle underneath her. She is utd on all of her shots.

additional info:my husband reminded me that we bought different food the other day. Also the puppy keeps trying to lick the saliva off of her mouth and if she yawns the puppy tries to lick the inside of her mouth. Also when her saliva leaves droplets on hard floor or if she flings it on the coffee table it looks like water not saliva. We took her water away just to make sure that its not that.(trying to do the process of elimination since the vet isn't open)OH! and when she gets a bad drool starting she starts to lick the inside of her mouth alot.

update: our vet is fully booked till next month and we finally found a vet that'll see her tomorrow morning

Final update: It turns out that she is allergic to the adam's flea and tick spray for dogs,puppies,cats and kittens.

Bring her to the Vet, it's not normal to drool like that, even if her mouth was OK before, just like us problems can develop, or maybe something in the food affected her but whatever my dog would be at the Vet ASAP

Excessive drooling can be caused by so many things that you really need to get a vet check up asap. Teeth problems, an abcess, ate something poisonous. Any abrupt change in your dog's behavior warrants a vet check.

It sounds like she may have gotten into some sort of chemical or household cleaner. I would take her to the vet ASAP.
