The day before yesterday my dog started licking the carpet

Hi Pearl. The day before yesterday my dog started licking the carpet and pacing with his tail lowered. Took him outside, he ate a little grass and vomited a little but not much. Eating normally and going to the bathroom as usual. Thought it was over. Last night, he started licking the carpet in the middle of the night. Settled down after about 20 minutes. Not sure if I should be concerned or if it's just a bellyacheJA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know if your dog will be able to digest that. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about your dog?Customer: He's been sneezing a bit, but otherwise nothing. He's 10 months old

Our 10 year old german shepherd is not eating. Today is Tuesday has not eaten since last thursday. Yesterday I took him to the vet, had blood work done and the vet said all his blood work was within range. He is drinking water and urinating. Vet sent him home with antibiotic to take, one pill twice a day. If all his blood work was normal why am I having to stuff pills down his throat twice a day. Have given some chicken and hamburger to entice him to eat. Eats one or two bites and spits the the last piece out. He is loosing his strength rapidly. Now what?
