Odd Drooling

800 Views 3 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  KittehLuv'n
My new foster is drooling. Not the drippy kind of "happy drooling", it accumulates around his mouth and is a bit thick. I had him on Baytril for 5 days and it did not stop. Have been trying to get a good look into his mouth to see if maybe there is a tooth problem. So far everything looks just fine.
Does this sound like something that is indicative of a greater problem, or could it just be his natural way?
I had another foster from our group look at him and she thought he looked fine.
Just don't know.
Any ideas, thoughts welcomed

In my experience "thick" drooling usually indicates something going on in the mouth, a sore or ulcer, a bad tooth, or gum problem. Best to have a vet check it out.
I'd have a vet take a look. Excessive drooling is often indicative of some sort of oral problem, and it's extremely difficult, if not impossible, to do a thorough oral exam on a conscious cat.

Thank you ladies. That is what I am thinking too. Now to get board approval. sigh.
