Unhappy My dog is eating bricks??

Hi all!

My dog has begun to take an affinity with our (now sealed) brick fireplace. She gnaws and licks the brick and mortar, and recently managed to chip a piece off with her paw and proceed to try and eat it. I'm confused as to why she's doing this (it HAS to hurt) and any thoughts on how to stop it? She's 9 months now and when we took her to the vet in October, he has said all her teeth were in and she shouldn't be teething anymore.

She tends to like chewing on things that are harder - she'll try and scrape her teeth on our tile, chew on baseboards, etc.

I feel awful for her and feel like its chipping away at her poor little puppy teeth

I would consult your vet to see if it could be a deficiency of any sort. And if she likes hard things, does she have antlers to chew?

She does, she loves her antler. We've also given her other bones and try and distract her when she goes to eat the wall with her antler. Good idea about any kind of deficiency though
