|I have a 8 yr old red tri-color BC (Border Collie). I
got him at 7 months. We have always gone for walks, played fetch and visted dog parks. Dog parks really help with a young active dog.
As my dog got a little older, we stopped going to the
private pay dog park, near where I use to live, due to the high cost each month. We still went to parks, so
my dog could run and play. So, for about 3 yrs, we did
not go to a dog park.
I moved 8 months ago and just found a dog park near me. He likes the new dog park, but has started started to foam at the mouth, even in cooler temps. Something
he has never done before. Other dogs do this to. I'm
wondering why this might be happening? He does not foam at the mouth when playing fetch, or tug-o-war.
Maybe he runs and plays harder, at the dog park, or
something like that.
Dogs in the park will bump into each other and get slobber on each other. I'm just wondering if my BC,
could get sick from this, and why he has started to foam at the mouth, because it didn't happen in the
past, when at a dog park. Is it maybe age or something else?
He is 8 yrs old and has slowed down a little, but is still fairly active, when we have cooler temps in FL.
He has never been real active when it is hot out. The dog park has water, so that's not the problem.
