Is something wrong?

So a few days ago a woman brought over a small puppy and one of my mom's work buddies told her it was a B. We have had him for 3 or 4 days now and he hasn't really eaten. His teeth are still a little see through and so I assume he is still a young one. Less than a year, but he won't eat a lot, and now he's drooling a bunch. I don't know what to do or if there is really any thing wrong. This is the first time he's drooled like this. At first I thought he had an accident on me while we were in bed but then when I turned on the light his whole chin was covered in drool. It is sticky and smells a little off. My mom is a nurse and she told me not to worry about it but I am. Any help with this guy would be nice.

You need to take him to the vet for sure.

We second the suggestion to take the puppy to the vet. Who really knows what might be wrong with that puppy. Do you know where this puppy came from originally? Do you know if it has had any of its puppy shots? Sounds like this puppy needs a complete physical including a worm check and or treatment. We suggest, that you get this puppy to the vet as soon as possible. In the mean time you should attempt to find out the history of this puppy and any treatment ( puppy shots/worming) or anything else it might have had from the woman that brought it over to your mothers work buddies. Also see if you can get a number where you can talk to that woman directly in case you or your vet need more information. While what you do is up to you, standard procedure for us, it always to take any new puppy we get to vet as soon possible. We do this for the health, welfare, and safety of the animal and as a precautionary step.

A Vet for sure…. 1st thing to do, period. Puppies loose their puppy teeth starting at 4 months... never heard of drooling like what you describe... so without a doubt... Vet for sure... immediately
