    Default EPS and drool?

    Hey everyone. So whopper is a heavy drooler. I am constantly wiping his jowls with a towel. I'm wondering if anyone knows if that should subside after he heals from EPS surgery. Seems like he is drooling even worse since the surgery on Monday but I expect that while he heals. I'm sure it's sore and swollen in his throat right now which naturally would produce more saliva than normal. I'm kind of hoping that after its all healed up in a couple weeks that he doesn't drool quite as much. I've had four other bulldogs and none of them drooled as much as whopper does.

    Did they check his teeth while he was under? Sores in mouth,or teeth needing cleaning are possibilities. The only time one of mine drools, is when she is seeing me fix her food. The drooling should slow down once he heals,but some "floppy jowled" dogs are droolers, Check his mouth out for possibilities. Give him some time to heal @versicolor Glad he is doing well!

    I will check his teeth. Thanks for the suggestion. I'm wondering if an elongated palate can contribute to excessive drooling. I've never read anything about if that is a possibility. Seems like it would though.

    Hank is 'not' a drooler, but drooled for a bit after surgery...And ohhhhhhhhhhhh I was a tad freeked cause I thought "what have I done" !!! He quit so, hopfully, even though yours was a drooler before, mabie it's because the salvia wasn't flowing in the right direction and will now... i'll be real interested to know so try to remember to update. Also, I would surely think/hope that the vet would have checked teeth while under but do check... That's very possible a cause for drooling, though, as previously said, some just drool.

    Is he still on pain meds? Wondering if he is in pain or the meds are upsetting his belly

    I'd say by the 3rd day he was feeling pretty good... prob some drool, not constant, but it really took that two weeks before he seemed real good and I could see the full benefits of the surgery. The harness is a Julius k9.. I have two different ones for him and love both.. Amazon does sell (I think I got that one there) but check the Julius site as well because they have closeout sales with pretty good deals which is why I bought his summer one

    He is on cephalexin. Not sure if that is for pain but yes he does have an upset belly. When I feed him for meal #2 at about 2:30pm he seems to have trouble keeping it down. Any other meal he keeps it down fine.

    Sorry I meant meal #3.
