How can you diagnose your dog’s licking?
It definitely isn’t an easy problem to diagnose. However, it’s imperative that before this behavior becomes habitual, you must take action since once it’s habitual it’s much more difficult to put a stop to.
Expect a veterinarian to ask questions like:
- When did the licking begin?
- When does your dog lick?
- How long does it lick for?
- Can you stop the licking?
- When you stop it, does it just continue licking after?
- Can you find out if the dog engages in this behavior when it’s alone?
You should also monitor any behavioral changes in your dog. If these changes are related to the licking, it may become easier to diagnose the problem. Be sure to think about things regarding the dog’s personality or diet. Also be sure to take into account anything that might’ve changed in the dog’s environment.
- Did anyone move out?
- Is there someone new in the house?
- Any construction being done on your house or a neighbor’s?
The same way a physical examination can rule out physical causes for licking, these question can help your veterinarian to rule out any psychological or emotional reasons.
How do you put an end to the excessive licking?
If there is any medical disorder discovered, there are, of course, treatments that will focus on addressing the issue. If the reason is caused by stress or boredom, your veterinarian will discuss ways in which you can limit your dog’s anxiety.
It’s important to remember that diagnosing your dog’s excessive licking can be both difficult and frustrating. You and your veterinarian need to partner up and find the best way to rid your dog of this problem before it gets any worse.
