Default 6 month old Shih Poo

5 days ago, our 6 month old shih-poo had surgery to remove 17 teeth in
her mouth. Included in the 17 teeth removed were baby teeth that had
not yet fallen out, some adult teeth to reduce crowding, and 2 deformed
molars on the lower jaw.

After 3 days of recovery and seemingly doing a lot better, our puppy
has now started drooling excessively, it seems, mostly while she is
sleeping.

Her entire face and neck are drenched after an hour or two.

Last evening (after a full day of excessive drooling), she vomitted.

Why is she drooling so much? Can surgery to remove teeth cause this?
Or, could this be some kind of poisoning?

Thank you for any help.
Fette

Hi Lynne,

The vet (dentist) that performed the surgery didn't tell us anything.

We weren't sure whether or not to bring her to our regular vet or not?


Thank you for your repsonse.

Hi Janet,

I did call them yesterday. My husband and I both called.

Honestly, the vet was rude. The vet gave no indication of what the
problem might be and suggested it "wasn't common" for a dog to be
drooling this much.

I can't tell you how disappointed I am with the after care we are
receiving in this case.

How about CALLING them?

Hi Janet,

It was actual the vet - dental specialist - that we called yesterday to
find out what the problem might be.

I am furious.

With such a small dog and so much drool, I wonder if she is becoming
dehydrated?

I agree there! Was it your regular vet that you called, or the dental
surgeon? I'd be pretty furious with that [lack of] response!

Considering your previous post questioning whether or not the dental
procedure was appropriate, if I were you, I'd take my dog *right
now* to either your regular vet or an emergency vet.

There may not be anything seriously wrong, but *something* is
causing the increased drooling. I'd want to know what, and that
will require a trip to the vet.


Gums can take a long time to heal after tooth extractions, but if the
dental vet says the excessive drooling is not normal then there is no doubt
your dog needs to be seen by someone. I'm not sure if I would take her
*right now* unless she is showing signs of distress. If the only symptom
is excessive drooling, I would certainly make an appointment for the within
the next day or so, and not with the dental specialist. BTW, the vomiting
could be coincidental or the result of swallowing too much drool. One
incident of vomiting isn't cause for concern, but if it continues,
obviously it's a problem.

OTOH, if you believe she might be dehydrated, take her to an emergency vet
NOW.
