Help- my cat is drooling- alot... ?
My one and a half year old cat is drooling- a LOT.
Its been going on for a afternoon now.
He is totally active, drinking, eating, playing next to the dog. His temperment isn't that different. He is a bit weaker than normal but he is always quite listless so I don't know if its any different than he normally is.. :)
Any ideas of what it is? Other than the excessive drooling he's fine... Other than motto take him to a vet- any other ideas / suggestions / thoughts as to what this is?
He should be up-to-date with adjectives his vaccines. He's had his rabies one- its getting near to have it begin again but he should still be covered.
Thanks for any help.
And a vet is not an option really where I live... So any 'home-help' would be appreciated.
It maybe a few things. :3 Cats sometimes drool when they show affection. If your cat is completely active from playing he maybe thirsty alot. I know my cat actually pant like a dog when she's been playing or if shes stressed when going to the vet or when we vacuum the house.
Even though you influence a vet isn't an option, i really would encourage you to go, you possibly glad that you did!
Best of luck to you and kitty! >^..^<
I once had an elder cat that drooled when it was showing affection.
Also: It would NOT be rabies. Pet booster shots are more harmful than good, oodles recent news articles I've been reading more and more of voice that the side affects that can be caused are anything from cancer at the injection site, to making the pet less immune to the disease. They shouldn't be given at the frequency that they are. I haven't got any booster shot as an grown, and I've never had the diseases that we were inoculated for as children - pets are the same. We are trying to win the laws regarding the required frequency of shots changed.
My older cat always drools.
They'll do it when they capture car sick or they are happy. Mine does it when she's heavily asleep.
There's nothing wrong near it. It's just like when we drool in our sleep.
But if he/she is drooling all the time, it most credible means they got into something. If you live in lousianna or the southern slice of the country, your cat could have gotten a hold of a toad or frog and if thats the case the cat would droll because of the toxins the toad/frog give off.
Im not sure if i be any help, i hope i was and i hope its nothing serious!
If there's spagetti type drool baggy off his mouth, it's a broken tooth with the root exposed. Our Fred snapped a fang past its sell-by date jumping down onto concrete and slipping. He was miserable for the first afternoon, then acted like nothing happen the second when I could catch him and get him surrounded by. Both days had drool down his mouth in strands that were over 8" long. He be an outdoor cat we couldn't catch easily at that point (was later converted to totally indoors).
It could also be that he ate something that irritated the mouth (a cat close at hand us chewed on a battery and got acid contained by his mouth, it gave caustic burns to his tongue and he had the ropy drool, we took him contained by for vet care).
I also had a cat who chewed on a ficus tree I had and he was drooling excessively from that, which be a toxic reaction to the sap (vet said to keep him hydrated but just loaf it out).
