- Poison substances – there are many different foods and substances that are poisonous to dogs which include chocolate, different kinds of nuts, sweeteners found in food and some plants.
- Teeth problems – its important to keep your dogs teeth clean so that they don’t develop any health issues. If there is a problem with one of their teeth then you can expect some drooling. Make sure you clean them at least once to twice per week.
