    Default Possible sick Bulldog

    Hi All-

    My Dad has the mother to my bully. We adopted from the same breeder. He contacted me today and said that she may be sick. He told me that she is drinking a lot of water and has a pool of water/saliva coming out of her mouth at all times. This is not a normal behavior. He checked her mouth and didn't see any teeth issues or anything stuck. He lives on acreage in MO and thinks she may have gotten something in the woods. She likes to head into the woods to do her business. He will be taking her into the vet tomorrow, but I wondered if anyone else has had this happen.

    Oh gosh, I'm so sorry to hear this…
    Is she eating/pooping normally?!! I'm wondering if she ate "something" or maybe got into some poison… he may want to call a vet ASAP. This doesn't sound very good at all...

    Hi Amanda, I'm so sorry your baby is sick. I hope she gets better soon, and it's nothing serious. She may have eaten something in the woods that didn't agree with her or possible something poisonous like mushrooms, or some plant or flower. The other thing it might be is an obstruction, due to maybe swallowing something in the woods. Signs of an obstruction are vomiting, diarrhea, and drooling water from the mouth. I hope the vet can find the cause. Please keep us posted.

    Drinking like that could be signs of Diabetes, obstruction, or poisoning. I just noticed that this post was yesterday. @AmandaPeterson please let us know how your Dad's Bullie is-and what the diagnoses was? Hoping all is well now.

    Sorry for the delay I just got information from him. She had a fever and does have some skin issues as well. He gave her some antibiotics and a medicated shampoo. He said the reason for the drooling is that when they have a fever they drink a lot and drool to try to get the fever down. I did not know that. So she seems to be ok. He just needs to collect a urine sample now. That should be fun!

    Hi Amanda, I hope she's doing better today, has her fever gone down? I wonder if she has a UTI? Hopefully the medication kicks in and she starts to feel better. Tell your Dad to make sure she drinks so she doesn't dehydrate, he can also give her some Pedialyte.

    she seems to be doing better on the antibiotics. He is having a hard time collecting her urine. She wont go if she is on the lead, so hes trying to figure out another way. Poor thing was bred a lot and in a crate for most of her life we think. So trust is hard to get with her.
