Canines have four pairs of salivary glands that drain into the mouth and, if your pup has loose, droopy lips, often comes pouring right out.Canines have four pairs of salivary glands that drain into the mouth and, if your pup has loose, droopy lips, often comes pouring right out.
Regardless of the amount, saliva is a natural, healthy substance produced in the mouth that helps them to swallow and digest their food – much like our own saliva.
Some simple reasons your pet drools can be in response to:
- delicious food
- Anxiety or car sickness
- hereditary: their breed just drools more than others!
Since your dog can’t pant and swallow at the same time, the saliva that collects only has one place to go: out. You wouldn’t stop your dog from panting, so the best cure for this is to have a towel handy.
