How to Prevent Dry Mouth in Pets

Even though drool is a loathed aspect of pet ownership, saliva has an important role to play. Dry mouth in dogs and cats can be a cause of numerous health problems.

Key takeaways:

– Saliva has the vital roles of moisturizing food, lubricating food for easier swallowing, preventing dental disease and infection, and for oral comfort.

– Possible causes of dry mouth include fever, dehydration, some medications, radiation, dysautonomia, and nerve damage.
