My Dog Has Begun Drooling And Salivating Excessively. I Cannot Find Any Injury, Dog Was Outside And Playing In Yard. What Do You Think It Could Be? Dog Was Also Shaking Like Being Scared When She Came In And Clinging For A Bit.

Symptoms like this can signify exposure to anticholinergic chemicals, such as pesticides. It may have been too long ago for you to recall now, but had the yard been sprayed with any chemicals right before the dog went out? Don't ever let your pet play on grass that has been recently sprayed with insecticides or other chemicals. (Cats are even more sensitive than dogs, and puppies/kittens are more sensitive than adults.) If your pet ever shows symptoms after exposure to chemicals, call your emergency veterinary clinic or poison control service.

Unfourtunatly in some cases if your do does not usually drool like you have seen it could be a case of poisoning, symptoms including drooling are
  • nosebleeds
  • bleeding gums
  • blood in the urine
  • bloody diarrhea
  • hair loss
  • extensive bruising
  • fatigue
  • shortness of breath

  • but this could just be a normal thing, also it depends on the dog breed b/c some don't drool much.

    Drooling and salivating, uncombined with other symptoms, does not signify any illness in the dog. Dog's drool/salivate when they are excited or hungry. It is very possible that the playing excited the dog very much, and when she entered the house this heightened state of excitement resulted in her drooling all over you. It is nothing to worry about, unless, as previously mentioned, there are any other symptoms as well. Shivering in dogs is also not a symptom of anything, as dogs are known to shiver without any reason.

    I would suggest that if the drooling worries you, you make sure that the next time she enters the house you give her a few minutes to calm down outside by petting her and let her into the house when she is calmer. Also, since she is drooling excessively, I would suggest you make sure she drinks at least 1 liter of water per day.
