Abstract

Drooling is a general term describing two different clinical signs: ptyalism and pseudoptyalism. Ptyalism and pseudoptyalism often overlap, and thus the clinical distinction between them is not possible without further investigation. This chapter covers aetiology and pathogenesis, differential diagnoses, signalment, history and physical examination, diagnostic tests, treatment, and zoonotic and public health considerations.
