Obsessive licking/Stomachache?

Occasionally my 12/13 year old Walker hound will start licking and licking the carpet. Not knowing what to do I usually take her outside, she'll eat grass, poop and that will be the end of it.

It doesn't happen often enough to be a serious concern though I'm more concerned about when it happens. She always does this at night, either right after he nightly walk when I'm trying to go to bed or in the middle of the night.

Is there something I can give her to settle her stomach or something that doesn't involve getting up in the middle of the night and taking her out?

Have your Vet verify that there is nothing medically going on that needs treatment. We have used pepsic-ac with success to help our dog when she has had a simple upset. Run that past your Vet, and have him/her give you a dosage recommendation. Our Vet was in favor of using that.

I've read about giving them human stomach medicine and to be honest I'm a little leery of doing that. I've tried canned pumpkin and burnt toast in the past and neither has worked. She seems fine today so far.

It can be a lack of fibre in the diet, might be a little hungry. I give my dog a couple of dog biscuits before I go to sleep, & she hides them in her dog bed which is on mine, then at midnight she gets them & has a little midnight feast, a drink of water & sleeps through the night soundly in my bed. She never has tummy trouble. You could try it if you like. 😊
