Q. Dog was drooling profusely and collapsed, fine the next morning. She is 7 year old Bernese Mt dog, 50 lbs and never drools.

Answered By

A. It is possible that your dog may have had a seizure or other neurologic event which could cause drooling and collapse to occur. It is best to bring her into your vet ASAP for an exam and care as the seizure could be related to an illness, toxicity or chronic issue which needs treatment.
