My dog is licking his lips and drooling excessively on the right side only.He also has a small tear on his tongue- could this be the reason for his behaviour? He is eating ok but seems slightly under the weather

Dr. Susan :

Hi, I can help you with your question today.

Dr. Susan :

Yes, a wound on his tongue could absolutely cause the other signs you are seeing.

Dr. Susan :

Do you know how this wound happened? Does it look like a trauma? We can also see oral ulcers for other reasons, such as kidney disease for example.
