My dog is going through this "licking everything in sight", after waking from bedtime after 20 minutes. This has never happened before I so I found this site, after calling the vet on call as well seeing many links for seizures. This is still going on right now... for the 1st time right now & I am FREAKING out but remaining calm for her. I called my vet & he was asleep as it was 1:30 am, now is 2:50 am & it is still going on. I found some posts on this site from others going through this but no one had mentioned seizures? Someone said about reverse sneezing or nasal drip going down throat but when I went to post a reply I didn't have account & had to sign up & then was able to post a comment on one post but couldn't go back to post a reply to another I had wanted to. I do not know this site at all or how to use it so I decided to post here, just trying to get the word to you in case your dog too is going through a seizure...I PRAY THEY ARE NOT, SAME FOR MINE!!
She is so restless & licking everything, especially under the couches, dressers, tables & anywhere there is dust & crap. I have been trying everything to sooth her, excessively, but nothing works longer than a few minutes & then she needs to get up & pace & lick again. The vet said she is just irritated & likely got into something while out side for her bed time pee & that she is just going to puke. She has puked before but NEVER had behavior like this EVER!! She is licking the air too & when I looked on line, after my frustrations with the call to the vet, all I can see for very fitting answers is that she is having a seizure!!!! All the symptoms match & so do most al of yours & yet none of you seem to have mentioned that as something you found on line too? When I typed in excessive dog licking every link I had come up was about seizures!! I am so scared & I am praying this will soon stop...and never happen again & she is my sweet sweet girl, like my daughter & it is killing me seeing her go through this & I feel so helpless. The vet didn't seem like I was welcome to call back if it didn't stop or if she didn't puke & so I am torn as he is the only one on call for tonight, now 3 am & my vet doesn't open until 8 am. I hope you all found the answers you are looking for as too do I hope I do as well. All the best to you all & your sweet babies. My sweet Harley is so tired right now but she can't stop pacing & licking, almost 2 straight hours now.
