could the fact that he is teething cause him to be sensitive to have his mouth being touched?? he's also drooling outa one side of his mouth...he's only been drooling like that for about a day or so..any answers??

I remember both of my GSD's teething...and drool seems to be something I remember.

One thing to remember is that at this age, you NEED to be working daily or more with your dog so that you can do what needs to be done, including handling his mouth, head, feet etc. Get him used to allowing you to handle him because if you don't, later on there could be problems.

From your picture, his mouth looks normal to me. I am no expert though so I hope that others will weigh in on the issue.

i just got back from the vet..hes got an infected/absessed(sp) tooth. the vet thinks maybe he got something stuck in his gums and became infected. it didnt look very good at all. he's on some anti biotics and a pain killer.

he always lets me mess with his mouth..his reaction this morning was odd and he has NEVER reacted to me touching him like this b4 so i knew that was something wrong and there was.
