1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Hi guys, I hope everyone and their doggies are doing well.

Since we got home from the dog park last night, our Loki has started drooling way more than usual. The drool is think kinda like when he is waiting for his food. He is active and acting very normal.

Last night we took him to the dog park and for the first time he engaged in social play with another dog, each of them were wrestling with one another and playing the dominant submissive roles. It is the most physically active he has ever been, and it was a lot of mental and physical stimulation. The drooling started about 3 hours after we got back. Any ideas what could be going on?

The dog trainer we work with told us he thinks he is just over exhausted and maybe feeling a little stressed from last night, and that we shouldn't worry too much.

I am trying to stay calm as I worry very easily but it just seems strange to me and I am trying to tell myself its no big deal...Thoughts? Sad

Sophia and Loki the puppy!

He's probably fine, but definitely keep an eye on him. If his energy level drops, if he has any stomach upset or any changes in peeing and pooping take him to the vet. Excess drooling can be a symptom for some pretty dangerous things, like toxicity.

That type of hyper stimulation can cause drooling.  Mine recently caught his first rodent and he was profusely drooling.

Thanks for the input guys. I guess the reason I am super worried is that he still drooling this morning...so I got more nervous than I was before. He hasn't eaten anything unusual and is acting normal, he is playing with his little soccer ball this morning AND he was pulling a lot on this mornings walk so he definitely isn't lethargic......I will watch him closely and keep you posted!

I agree - have you checked his mouth for any cuts or foreign bodies in the gum/tooth pockets? If not, I might give a call to the vet.

If any of the dogs he was playing with, and potentially chewing on their necks or grabbing at their backs, were treated with a topical flea and tick treatment like frontline or such, he could be having an allergic reaction to it. Some dogs are a little more sensitive to the stuff that people goo all down their dogs backs for bugs.
