|Wow. I am so glad to read everyone's responses as I thought I was alone in dealing with this. Sophie has incidents like this too, where she gets what I assume are hiccups and licks the carpet, blankets, chews rugs, whatever. She gets very freaked out and anxious and won't settle down until they are over. Then of course she throws up the carpet or rug or whatever. I called the vet the first time it happened, and they just said that hiccups are normal. I don't know, I've never had another dog act that way before.
I noticed it happened to her when she gulped down a piece of food very quickly (the first two times, we were outside and she picked up something off the ground and gulped it down before I could get it away from her). The third time happened after she ate also.
I give her a Pepcid, but I think what helps is very small bites of food. I give her tiny bits of chicken baby food on a spoon over and over and that seems to make them go away. I've also used Frosty Paws since she has to lick and lick to eat that.
