Male miniature schnauzer neutered, 11 years old, has ongoing problems of
teeth extractions by vet (now only has about half of original teeth in his mouth), constantly has new nails bed growing in slow and then crooked shaped, and always has skin itching problems. Lately acquired a constant drooling out of one side of his mouth since his last tooth extraction. Vet states it is an irritated gum problem? and placed dog on antibiotics several times now, but no long term cure has worked yet. Need help with easy solution, loving pet owner.

On a side note, drooling can also be neurological. Discuss with a second vet.
