Q. Is there any medication that can control drooling in a dog? The excessive saliva is not letting him eat - my Lab has squamous cell carcinoma.
DR. MASSIMO ORIOLES, DVM, MRCVS
A. It is necessary to know the root of the problem to understand how to stop it. If the drooling is caused by the squamous cell carcinoma (where is it?) is going to be quite difficult to stop it with medications. The drooling may be caused by pain or discomfort so pain killers and antiinflammatories may help him.
I am happy to try to give you more helpful informations if you post on the forum more clinical informations (especially related to the tumor) or require a consultation.
Otherwise I would recommend to take him to your veterinarian for a check up and appropriate treatment.
