Drooling Cat

Yesterday our cat started drooling profusely, enough to be noticeable on bed/ custion etc. At first I thought he had messed. Seems to be eating fine Regularly goes outside and wondering if he ate something unhealthy? Hard to tell if he is sleeping more than usual because wants to stay out all night and sleep all day. Live on acreage therefore exposed to wild animals. Tried to open cat's mouth but wouldn't let me. Not foaming at mouth but I am concerned. Please help.

You'll have to take your cat to the vet.

It could have been poisoned, could have a broken/abcessed tooth, or could have a foreign body caught in the teeth/throat.

I would go ASAP.

Thanks

Your cat needs to see a vet ASAP. It could be an abcess/broken tooth, irritation in the throat, toxins, etc. etc. which only your vet can answer.

Good luck.:goodvibes:

Hi TheGang, have to agree you need to take your kitty to the vet. ASAP. The original poster to this thread does not seem to be around anymore so will not likely answer you here.

Please let us know what the outcome/prognosis is once you have seen your vet. Good luck.

ringwell, TheGanch, did you bring your cats to the Vet? How are your cats doing now?

Now you guys have me curious. My son's cat drools, when happy, but his vet said he drools because he is happy and not to worry. I don't trust that. He was just seen by this vet in April for his 1 yr check up.

Lots of cats drool when they purr (I have 2 like that), and at 1 yr old, it's highly unlikely to be a dental issue. So I think your vet is right. Drooling is more of a concern if it's a new/sudden thing.
