Excessive Licking

Many dogs express themselves through body language, but licking can mean a lot of different things.


If your dog is stressed, they may be showing these signs.

  • Panting

  • Excessive licking
  • Appearing uneasy.

Try to find the root of their stress and eliminating it, if you cannot eliminate them, try reassuring your pet. Stressful things could be children screaming, loud fireworks, gun shots, and thunder.

Fleas, Ticks, and Mosquitoes

  • Make an effort to check your dogs overall body to see if there are any bites from these insects. Make sure to be giving flea and tick medicine as product requires. There are many different kinds of products on the market, do your research before

    you decide to go with one. We recommend Frontline Plus.


  • Dogs often lick their wounds to boost blood flow. If your dog gets injured they will most likely lick that area to help heal it. If your dog likes the same spot continually make sure to examine that area for any cuts, scrapes, bruising, or swelling.
