Good Morning and welcome. I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
THis licking behavior often means that your girl feels nauseous. It could be from something she may have ingested while on her walk. For now, since this is probably minor, fast her for 12 to 24 hrs and after the fast, feed her a small meal of rice and boiled chicken. If she feels better, then she will be fine. If she continues this or starts vomiting, it is best to have your vet examine her. In most cases, however, this is enough to resolve this odd behavior.
Does that make sense to you?Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please Reply so I can clarify for you Sincerely, ***** *****
