I adopted a beautiful 4 (or so) year old, male basset about a month and a half ago. Three times in the past 2 weeks he has had a phase of heavy, water-like drool dripping from his jowels. It is very, very runny and lacking of the normal tar-like consistency of normal Bassett drool I know it is not normal, and I have to follow him around the house all night with a towel. I can't seem to narrow down any isolated event/food that may be causing it. He isn't uncompfortable and in pain, he just licks his lips a lot and is restless and won't settle down to sleep at night. When he wakes up in the morning, it is gone. I guess he just needs to sleep it off... but it is difficult while he is in the process of soaking everything in the house. Has anyone heard of this or had any experience with it? Could it be allergies, or just a "thing" he does? Help!
