Wet Beard
by: Dayna

My Toy Schnauzer is 1 year and 7 months old. Just in the last week (getting worse as the week went on), her beard is soaked.Primarily when she sleeps and wakes up and the blanket she sleeps on is soaked. She is eating less but still eating. No diarrhea or vomiting.I took her the urgent care last night. They gave her a shot for fluids and a shot to reduce nausea. Said they could her gurgling in her GI track.I've never seen this before and worry about her. Has anyone else experienced this with their baby?
NOTE FROM LINDA: We haven't experienced this, but heard of it from other owners. The main thing is your Schnauzer is getting veterinary care. Hopefully they can sort her out. We are thinking of you. Good Luck.

Wet feet and beard
by: Toni

My Mini chewed her paws constantly last summer and the vet said it was allergies. I bought a spray that had cortisone in it and sprayed her feet. During the winter she has been fine.
I have read that sponging cider vinegar on the skin helps relieve any bacterial itching, and will be trying that this summer.

wet paws
by: Tammi

Our dog does this because he obssessively chews on his feet as did our last schnauzer. The vet said it is caused by an allergy.

Any problems inside his mouth?
by: Betsy, Alpharetta, GA

Don't know what the problem could be but,
it sounds as if Max is drooling.

Could he have a problem with a tooth or a sore inside his mouth?

Is he chewing his food? And, is he refusing all liquids or just water?
