Snow chills?

The other day my neighbour took out their puppy for a walk in the morning and it started playing in the snow. After about an hour the puppy started drooling and wouldn't stop. We took it to the vet and they wouldn't figure out a problem. It later stopped drooling. This happened again yesterday. I am just wondering, what would be the cause of the drooling?

Wow, never heard of that problem. I wonder if anyone on the Forum that lives in a cold climate has experienced this too, if your theory is right and it is related to snow/low temperatures. We rarely get snow in Seattle and Emmie's never had this issue so I'm stumped.

I live in a cold climate and have never heard of this, but if it has happened twice I don't think I would be letting the pup out in the cold for any length of time. Little pups lose body heat very quickly just as they overheat very quickly. They have small lungs too and frigid temps being breathed into little lungs can be dangerous. It is better to be safe than sorry, even if you have no definite answers. It may be coincidence, but don't risk it.
