hello folks, i have a 6 year old boxer and some morning's when i wake up to head off to work and let her out she will be constantly sticking her tongue out and licking the air and salavating pretty bad and swolling constantly and whenever this occurs she wants to head rite outside so i let her out and she dives rite into eating a bunch of grass, figured id let her do her thing snack on some grass see if that helps her stomach, when i bring her back inside she continues to try to eat stuff off the floor such as dirt/fuzz bunnies almost like she thinks its gunna help her stomach, has anyone else had this issue before?
How long has this been going on? Is this a regular habit, or is this something new? If this is something new, she may be getting into something in the house that is irritating her, or worse yet, poisoning her. Maybe she's eaten a spider, or something that is giving her an allergic reaction. I would suggest you take your dog to the vet for a check up.
It is a good idea to leave enough water for this dog at all times. I am also curious to see what the doctor says.. I would take him or her to a vet as you don't want to take any chances with an older dog.
