Excessive Dribbling in Staffy pup after exercise
My 10 month old staffy over the last 2 days been dribbling excessively after running. She's eating and drinking normally, seems happy in herself and enjoys playing, took her the park and she was sprinting up and down the field and she stopped and was a little vacant and had a clear fluid (like water) dripping from her mouth after running.
Her gums are pale pink and was unsure if she was unwell. Any ideas?
This is definitely a situation where you should have your pup evaluated by a veterinarian.
Excessive salivation can be a sign of stress or distress, and combined with the 'vacant' behavior and pale gums I really recommend that you get a professional evaluation to make sure all is well.
It's possible that she is having difficulty breathing easily and that is causing the symptoms, but it's impossible for me, or anyone else, to guess at what could be the reason behind them.
If it's very hot (probably unlikely in your part of the world, but possible) that could cause her to overheat and show similar symptoms.
Anything like this needs to be seen by a vet right away so please have her examined so that you can be on the safe side.
Best of luck, hope all turns out well.
