Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Hi, I'm Dr. Peter. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply ASAP.
1- How long has this been going on?
2- Did she get into anything?
3- Any vomiting, diarrhea or coughing?
I am sorry, I can not make a live call. But, I will be happy to answer your question on this thread. Or, I can opt out so another expert can help you. Please let me know.
1- Can you open her mouth to make sure there is nothing stuck under the tongue, gums, teeth, etc.?
When a dog tongue smacking like dry mouth this could be a sign of many different medical conditions. It will not be possible for me to pinpoint the exact underlying cause without a hands-on examination, I am sorry. But, common causes are a sign of distress if they are uncomfortable either within the gastrointestinal tract or somewhere in the body (full anal glands), dental disease, nausea, etc. to name a few causes. In this case, unfortunately, we are very limited as to what you can do at home, I am sorry. I would have her checked by your family veterinarian for hands-on examination. In the meantime, you can start her on Pepcid AC (famotidine) 10mg 1/4 tablet every 12 hours, this will help if this is related to nausea. You can buy Pepcid AC (famotidine) over the counter in any pharmacy.
