My name is***** and I would like to help answer your question.
When did the excessive salivation first start?
about 2 hours ago
Ok- can you check his gums to ensure they are pink and moist. Has he had any vomiting or diarrhea?
yes I have looked at his gums they are pink and he has not been sick to my knowlege
My internet went down for a few seconds so I paused the timer- please let me know if you have additional questions
you have not yet suggested anything. what advice can you give
I'm sorry my response must've not gone through- I will resend
Ok- the most likely cause of her excessive salivation is underlying nausea, even if she has not yet actively vomited. You can attempt to give her 20 mg of over the counter Pepcid (famotidine) or Prilosec (omeprazole) to help settle her stomach. You can give small amounts of water at a time today to keep her hydrated but ensure she does not gulp water down. You can offer boiled chicken and white rice for the next 24 hours.
If she becomes increasingly lethargic, begins retching as if she wants to vomit but can't vomit, has pale gums, or shows no interest in food, she should be seen.
Also if you can take a peek in her mouth (top palate, under tongue, cheeks, teeth, etc) just to ensure there isn't evidence of any kind of mass, foreign material, abscess, etc, that would be helpful.
I apologize for the delay- my internet went down just long enough to force me to sign back on to justanswer :) I have the timer paused so we have additional time.
