|I also posted this in the Swissy group forum, so I apologize if you see it as a dup:
I've read about "lick fits" on a couple of Greater Swiss Mountain Dog forums but have found very little info anywhere else. Greta just had her first episode last Wednesday and I was just wondering if anyone else has dealt with these. Basically my understanding is that the dog has an upset/gasy stomach and to try to alleviate the pain/pressure they continuously lick anything/everything in sight! The episode went on for about an hour until we gave her some Maalox and kept walking her in circles around the house. Finally she stopped and then seemed fine. It seemed that the Maalox gaver her diarrhea for the next day or so however. Just wondering if anyone has any insight into these fits or any treatment ideas. Thanks!
