My dog doest usually drool but for the last couple days she has had a slime coming out of one side of her mouth. She is not acting herself. She almost seems like she doesnt feel good. I checked her mouth and there are not visible sores or foreign objects.

Some dogs drool when they feel stressed or anxious. It could also be a physical reason, like a bad tooth, or ingestion of a poison or irritant.
As you say your dog feels unwell, I think a visit to the vet would be a good idea, as this is a symptom which could be something quite easy to deal with, or quite serious.

Hypersalivation can be due to nausea, trauma to the oral cavity, taste reaction, toxicity, and heat dissipation. Seek veterinary medical attention if further signs develop or the excessive drooling lasts longer than several hours.

She just drools all the time for no reason an we can't figure it out. I thought she had to throw up but she didn't . This has been going on for two days now. It just keeps hanging out of the side of her mouth really bad. Please tell me what to do. She is a akita/boxer mix.

Check her teeth to see if she has a missing one or if she has something in one if you have not already done that.

My dog drooled a lot after he ate a battery once...it can also be because the dog is stressed out. Some dogs just slobber because of their breed. Id look into the behavioral traits of your breed of dog.

I've had my shih tzu for 5 months and every month or so I get up to find him drolling a lot which makes all his chest and belly wet, although he's ok in himself. It usually lasts the day and I have keep drying him. What could be wrong with him?

He might be about to throw up. That's when dogs normally drool like that. But, if he does it all the time, you might want to consider asking your vet.

Excessive saliva can be a symptom of disturbed digestive system. You watch out his eating habits. When dogs ingest or swallow toxic or non-toxic materials like glue, potpourris, insecticides etc, they start showing the symptoms like drooling, lethargy, diarrhea, respiratory problems and mouth ulcers. It is also a symptom of rabies.But I hope you have got him vaccinated for rabies. So he might have swallowed glue or some chemical of mild nature. That is why he is only producing excessive saliva. Watch him more closely to rid him of this problem,
