    DefaultFoaming at the mouth...advise please x

    Hi, Draco was just sleeping and he woke up smacking his lips. When I looked he had a tiny bit of foam on his lips. The smacking and foam lasted a minute or so and then he fell back to sleep. He has appeared fine today and has had a walk and eaten his food so not sure what has caused it. I don't think he's eaten anything he shouldn't have and he doesn't appear to be in pain.

    Does anyone know what would cause this and should I be concerned about the foam?

    Thanks

    I donít know if Pugs get that way at night sometimes. Did your Pug then get up and get a drink? Feel his/her stomach is it soft or hard. Look at the toys that are chewed also in the mouth maybe a broken tooth or something. Keep checking on your Pug going 1 & 2. If itís an upset stomach or ate something he/she wasnít supposed to. Try lean cooked ground beef and white rice 1/3 beef and 2/3 rice at the size you feed your pig each time. Do this for a couple days and then you can even mix this in with his/her regular food. If any unusual keeps up its best to get your Pug to the Vet.

    Might be some acid reflux.....keep an eye on him. As long as he's acting okay...no harm is done

    I agree with the above, could be anything from a bit of an upset stomach or acid reflux to something stuck in the teeth or a tooth issue. My first guess would be acid reflux. The suggestion to feel his stomach is a good one, it should not feel hard. And, as mentioned above, as long as he is eating okay, going potty normally, etc. then it's probably nothing to worry about. If it continues to happen or if it gets worse, I'd certainly ask the vet about it next time he has an appointment.
