Drooling as a sign of health problems

Now you know that the medical term for excessive or abnormal drooling is ptyalism.

What health conditions can involve abnormal or excessive drooling?


The Pyrenees is one of the healthiest giant breeds and often lives 10 to 13 years in a safe home. I’ve heard of some pygmies making it to 15 years, which is pretty amazing for a giant breed.

Pyrs tend to have few health concerns, but osteosarcoma and bloat are the most lethal to the breed.

Hip and spine problems are also quite common, especially as they get older. Allergies are often a problem for dogs, so more attention needs to be paid to their environment and nutrition.

Oral Disease and Tooth Decay

I hope I don’t have to tell you that tartar can easily build up in the mouth and rub against their lips. It can also cause oral diseases which can cause them to drool. If you really want to check if your dog is already suffering from some kind of oral disease then always pull the upper lips towards the ears and look out for signs like a brownish color On The Teeth or the teeth looking like concrete. In addition, noticing any swelling, redness or bleeding indicates that there is definitely something wrong with the Great Pyrenees and they need professional care. You should always try to get a professional service before doing your own daily brushing.

If you notice your Great Pyrenees getting nervous or anxious when they get into the car, you might expect to notice them opening their mouths and panting and breathing as well as drooling. Painting or breathing can always make a Great Pyrenees drool. In this kind of situation, you need to be very calm to make your Great Pyrenees comfortable and at ease because anxiety can always cause your Great Pyrenees to drool.
