My seven year old yorkie female licks my carpeting every chance she gets and she will lick our cement patio also. We stop her but I would like to know why she does this. I had her teeth cleaned but that did not stop her. She is not lonely I am with her all day.
Just b/c your pet licks does not mean there is a problem. Have your vet do a blood test to check for anemia and start your pet on a multivitamin. this may help. Good luck, vetcare
