How can I stop my dog from drooling so much?
Though it may not be the most attractive thing your dog does, a little drooling is perfectly healthy and there’s no need to stop it. Dogs drool for many reasons, including:
- Anticipation of food - Certain breeds are more prone to drooling than others.
To save your carpet and furniture from a drooling dog, you can:
- Wipe her mouth periodically
- Use chew toys to encourage your dog to work her mouth and swallow more
- Chew toys also can help concentrate the drool on a couple of objects
Health problems – Some health problems can cause drooling, including nausea, anxiety and painful teeth. A veterinarian can rule out these health problems.
