Last Monday, Dec 11, my 18 month old yellow lab, Lily, was acting lethargic and having difficulty eating. Took her to the vet on Wednesday and he could not find anything wrong with her other then her hypersalivating. Took her back to the vet on Friday to have her sedated and make sure there was not anything caught in her throat. Her throat and wind pipe were clear. Her gums and teeth are healthy and tarter free. She is still hypersalivating and seems to have lost her ability to chew and swallow food. She has an appetite and tries her best to drink and eat. She seems to be getting back to her perky, active self but still stands with her mouth partially opened and drools. She did run/walk with me for an hour this past Sunday as well as take an hour walk with my husband. My husband and I know of no trauma to her. The vet says to let her heal herself for the next week or so. Do these symptoms ring a bell with anyone.
