Do they drool?

She is recovering from Demodex, MRSP infection, and ringworm. Supposedly she no longer has infection. The Dermatologist says she has skin that is prone to having bacteria. I'm so used to doing the baths, I guess I should ask in three weeks at her next appt. she gets one anti fungal bath and one anti bacterial bath per week. She is no longer squiggling on her back outside scratching. The anti bacterial bath is a bit irritating to her skin. The anti fungal is soothing to her skin.

I used to breed Scott/Performance line American Bulldogs. Typically they were not big droolers, though those that had more floppy lips were more likely to drool. Males weighed between about 65-95 pounds, females between 50-80, ours tended to the lighter side.

Not big droolers meaning...would they soak any cloth surface they happened to lay on for any length of time?

No, not the ones I had. Really quite dry mouthed.

OH...that's not so bad at all then. That would be MUCH less drool than my Frannie...the supposedly dry mouthed Basset...I was trying to find a comparison to put it in perspective.

Axle is a drooler. Shoe strings when I'm getting food around, and he'll leave wet spots on anything he lays on. My friend calls him "slug lips" for a reason.

Ya that's like twice as saggy lips as Remy, but I'm sure Remys will get even saggier as he ages.
 
It's not just lip size that dictates drooling. The harlequin, Zephyr drools so much more than than the fawn, Riddle did and Riddle had a huge amount of lip while Zephyr really doesn't. Riddle was fairly dry mouthed unless he was eating, drinking or running.

Interesting - I admit I always expect the more "jowly" looking jaws to drool more...and the more "tight lipped" ones to drool less...

My Fran was a moderate drooler

Mine both drool about the same, Diesel may or may not have some AB in him as well, but I'm not sure, he may just be a big ass boxer/pit mix

Hmmmph...they both look more jowly to me than V....

maybe there is nothing to the tight lipped theory...

but for whatever reason - she's thankfully not a drooler at all!
