Post Concerned, need advice

Let me start by saying I know bassets drool. Maggie will be 5 months old on Feb 8th. She so far hasnt been much of a drooler. Until this morning. We are talking drippy and puddles on the bed and couch where she lays her head for a while. I thought she had an accident when I woke up this morning to a soaked blanket and mattress puddle. She is eating fine and I have looked in her mouth for anything foreign or cuts or sores. She is drinking water as usual.

Is it typical for her to start drooling so suddenly? Is this normal?

Sudden excessive heavy drooling is not normal. Have you checked her mouth, gums, tongue, any swelling, foreign object, or has she eaten something even played with a toad or frog?

Had that with a cat after a toad had to have Sub Q fluids to keep from dehydrating.

I had one get one of those toads. He just drooled like nuts and drank a bunch but survived fine. If I'd known then what I know now, I would have gone to the vet.

There are usually only two times my boys drool excessively...right before they vomit (or when they are nauseated ) and when I am eating and they want some...we are talking about soaking a couch cushion with that one!

Toad Toxicity in Dogs

Though most toads are bitter tasting and usually result in profuse drooling in any pet that tries to take a taste

She probably is teething.

So Maggs is no longer drooling profusely. I poured her dry food into her full bowl of water after the post about dehydration. She promptly drank all the water then gobbled down the food. She is fine now. I'm guessing she licked something she shouldn't have.
