Excessive drooling with upset stomach - normal?

Hi all,
The last 2 days Griffin has been waking up in the morning from his crate and also from afternoon nap in the x pen with a completely wet face and chest. I guess it is drooling, though it's not thick, just like he has water on him. (It's not water, for sure, and not pee or anything).
Some background...he had diarrhea this week and went to the vet yesterday. They said he had a bacterial infection after checking his stool sample and he is on antibiotics.
He is eating, drinking and playing with Ginny (my other Hav).
My question is really about the drooling. Have any of you experienced this with your Hav when he or she has an upset stomach?
I just want to make sure nothing else unusual is going on with him. He is 6 months old. The vet does not seem concerned, BTW.
Thanks!!!!
Roxanne

Charlie had excessive drooling but this seemed to be associated with when he was teething rather than an upset stomach.

When dogs feel nauseous they sometimes will drool excessively.

Riley drools in the car, when he feels nauseous. I wonder if the antibiotics are upsetting his stomach. Try calling the vet to see if they have any suggestions to make him feel better.

Hi Rita, He was actually drooling before he started the antibiotics. So, drooling and diarrhea started yesterday morning and antibiotics were started yesterday afternoon. Seems to feel okay except he is soaking wet whenever he naps/sleeps.
Thanks for your help, everyone!!!

Did Charlie drool when the baby teeth were coming out or the adult teeth pushing in? Do you remember?
Griffin lost a bunch of baby teeth a few weeks ago. I thought teething was over, but maybe the new adult teeth are causing this.
Thanks!

It was when the new adult teeth were coming through. It only lasted a couple of days so I assume only a couple of them were really painful.

Yes, dogs can definitely salivate (a lot) if they are feeling nauseated. This has happened to Kodi a few times. My vet has prescribed half a pepcid to control it. Check with your vet before doing this, of course, but it has worked very well for Kodi.
