Why is my boxer drooling?

Answer

Many boxers drool because their loose lips and jowls allow saliva to escape, especially after the dog eats or drinks. Excessive drooling, however, can also be a sign of a health problem.

All dogs drool to some degree, especially when they are panting or right after eating or drinking. Excessive drooling is a common symptom of mouth pain due to dental problems like abscessed teeth. According to WebMD, it can also be a symptom of certain serious diseases like rabies, distemper or heat stroke. Dogs who suddenly start drooling excessively should be examined by a veterinarian as soon as possible.
