Hello
Customer: replied 9 days ago.
hi
Expert:  Linda Simmon replied 9 days ago.
Hello, you are through to Dr Linda, a UK based vet.
I'm sorry to hear Coffee has this issue.
Drooling can be due to several things including nausea, toxin ingestion, oral ulcers etc.
Has he possibly eaten something he shouldn't have?
Can you look inside his mouth to ensure all is ok?
Is he still active and eating as normal?
Customer: replied 9 days ago.
He eats normally and drinks normal water
Customer: replied 9 days ago.
now he sleep
Expert:  Linda Simmon replied 9 days ago.
How long has he been drooling for?
Customer: replied 9 days ago.
before 5 hours
Expert:  Linda Simmon replied 9 days ago.
He was drolling for 5 hours but this has now stopped?
I know he is sleeping but would want to check that his gums are still wet and all looks normal inside his mouth; there should be no ulcers, gingivitis, broken teeth or foreign objects such as a piece of bone, stick or toy.
Customer: replied 9 days ago.
I'll check it now
Expert:  Linda Simmon replied 9 days ago.
Ok, sure.
Customer: replied 9 days ago.
he have a loose tooth
Customer: replied 9 days ago.
maybe this is the problem?
Customer: replied 9 days ago.
the fang is loose
Expert:  Linda Simmon replied 9 days ago.
Ok, sure. This could be the cause. Normally at this age dogs have finished teething but he may be a little behind. It is also possible that the tooth has been damaged.
Do you know if it is a baby (long and slim) or permanent (more fat) fang?
Customer: replied 9 days ago.
it's a slim baby fang
Customer: replied 9 days ago.
around the fang baby is red, it seems to be damaged.
Expert:  Linda Simmon replied 9 days ago.
Ok sure. When a tooth falls out naturally there can be a little blood and this is normal. You are welcome to send a photo if unsure.
I suspect this is normal teething and the tooth should be gone within a few days.
Offer soft food if Coffe seems uncomfortable when eating.
You are very welcome to keep me updated and to ask any further questions you may have.
Customer: replied 9 days ago.
this
Customer: replied 9 days ago.
that
Expert:  Linda Simmon replied 9 days ago.
It is hard to say for sure without examining Coffe in person, but it looks as if the adult tooth will grow in soon.
The lower deciduous canine still needs to fall out.
It is likely this is all teething related.
From the photo, there appears to be an over bite and this can sometimes cause issues, especially if the teeth aren't aligned correctly and may grow into the soft tissue.
A vet visit to have the teeth examined would be sensible.
Customer: replied 9 days ago.
I'll visit the vet tomorrow.
