Question HELP!!! Excessive drooling

Okay..quick question.
I just found my elderly (15-18 yrs old Bulllie/Pittie mix) dog sleeping in a pile of drool nearly the size of her body!!
She is missing most of her teeth and her tongue does hang out while sleeping, so we are 95% certain that its drool. It also helps that she's on med's for incontinence.
My question is this: How concerned should we be and how quickly is a vet trip in order?

It is true that Pit Bulls grab and hold on. But what they most often grab and refuse to let go of is your heart, not your arm.

Hmmmm...has she drooled that much before? Maybe you should talk to your vet to be on the safe side!

I'd get to the vet as soon as I could. That is a serious depletion in fluids.
