Default Help My Dog is Excessive Licking!!!

This is going to sound crazy but my chihuahua (Gidget) has been excessivley licking for the last hour+. Her heart is beating Im sure twice as fast as it normally does and she is licking absolutley everything...the carpet, her blanket, furniture, chairs, and if you pick her up she licks you, your shirt anything that is close to her. I put her outside to potty and she goes crazy eating the grass. She hasn't eaten anything unusual just her dinner. I don't know what is wrong with her, if anything at all. It is kinda freaking us out!!!She has never done this before. Has anyone had this happen to them?

Help!! Candice

Sometimes that kind of obsessive behavior can be linked to seizure activity. I'd have her checked out.

It could be allergies. I'd have her looked at by your vet.

Sounds like an allergic reaction to something. I'd try a dose of Benedryl, quick!

Try to flush her mouth with water (with a drenched wash cloth). I would also give her a bath real quick.

It can also be excessive anxiety. Do you have a vet you can call?

Yep, anxiety too. Benedryl will help with that too.

just an update on gidget...she finally stopped licking about 2 hrs later and has been normal since. i talked to my breeder and she thinks that she ate a piece of food that was to big and it got stuck in her throat so licking was the best thing she could do to try and create saliva to push it down. gidget is all good now...thanks for all the input!!
