Hey Friends! Have you ever been covered in dog drool? I know I have, but what is the deal with drool? Dog drool is also known as hyper-salivation. Saliva is 98% water and also contains other compounds and enzymes that are important for overall pet health. It helps with swallowing, keeping your pet’s mouth comfortable, initiates the digestive process, and helps promote dental health. Hyper-salivation can have a number of causes, some are normal and some can indicate health problems. Normal causes can be from a food response or from excitement. Other times it can be from dental problems, growths, or nausea. If your dog seems to be drooling more than usual, we would recommend an appointment with the doctor  Until next time!
