Re: [Amber.Faith] Puppy saliva flow out from mouth
[In reply to]
Oh, I get it now. There could be two reasons why she's drooling only when she's outside of home. One, she may be very excited! Too excited until she starts drooling. Yes, there are dogs like that. Some dogs pee or bark out of excitement. Second, she may be nervous being out there. Is her tail tugged between her legs when walking? If yes, then she's very scared & nervous being in the outside world. But if the tail is up & wagging, then she's just over excited about her walk.
About the shedding problem, is she shedding on certain parts only like in patches? If yes, then she's having some hormone problems. My Amber(the one in the avatar) had this problem twice when she was younger & she had big bald spots here & there on her body. It's not like all together shedding, only certain spots like you mentioned about your dog. Amber got it after she had her 1st & 2nd heat. It's hormone imbalance & she had to take some hormone pills prescribed by the doctor. Only the 1st time we gave her pills but after the 2nd time, we just let it be & it all grew back by itself. But if she's shedding all over, then she's just shedding. It's normal in all dogs, not to worry. It will stop after a while & the hair will grow back.
hi amber,thank you for your fast reply.first of all,she's a rottweiler,we bought her when her tail is docked out already.so we couldn't know whether she's scared or not.we can only assume she's scared from her facial expressions.when she's happy,we can see her little tail wagging...very cute.but when we took her for a walk,there is a ACS puppy,she wagged her tail so happily,guess she wants to make friends.but other strays,she also wags her tail but when they approach closer,she seems scared.i don't know whether her drooling is her excitement or scared.
another thing,is it normal for her only being 2 months 2 weeks,to shed alot?well,u can say overall,she shed from her head till her whole body.on her abdomen,there is little hair left,her hind legs,there are some patches of fur shedding and also her ears.now it also spreads to her nose.is it possible she sheds because her fur is changing to adult fur?thank you again.
