|I'm glad you haven't seen anything new, have you seen a vet yet with regards to these symptoms? Is the drooling continual? Many people don't realize that Boxers do drool, some quite heavily. It's not a desired trait for the breed, and most breeders have worked to breed it out (breeding dogs with less jowls generally). Max, for example, has his moments. In fact, I keep "drool rags" handy for him so I can wipe him off. My other two don't drool at all except in extreme cases like when I'm preparing their food.
I agree the hartz could have been the cause, and I'm glad you'll be staying away from those types of products from now on. They're incredibly full of chemicals and you hear so many horror stories that they're just not worth the risk. I hope everything is okay.
I'd like to ask your purpose for breeding? I don't want to get on a soapbox, but I hope you'll carefully consider your choices with regards to breeding. There are plenty of people out there already breeding dogs that we don't need to help them out. Responsible breeding is fine, but please do your research and health testing first as well as examining your own reasons for breeding.
All of my dogs are speutered, including the one who came with a full registration (one is a rescue- my Shih Tzu, the other two Boxers came from an excellent breeder who sells his pups with limited registration, meaning no offspring can be registered to help prevent backyard breeding.)
