  • Why is my puppy drooling so much? I have a three month old schnoodle puppy who has never had a problem with drooling before. But this afternoon she just started drooling to the point where her mouth, chin and paws are soaked. Most things I read say its probably from teething but it just started happening and is excessive. I've noticed a few times she makes a noise as if she is trying to hack something up so I took her outside and gave her a cookie which seemed to help somewhat. Did I do the right thing or is there something really wrong with her? It's not from heat, its only 66 degrees today. The drooling started suddenly, one minute she was fine, the next she is drooling very badly. As far as the toxins go... one never knows for sure. I sure would hate to think that.
