I have a video but my miniature pinscher (21 months, 13 lbs)
I have a video but my miniature pinscher (21 months, 13 lbs) for 2.5 days has been constantly licking his body and paws. He bending his neck to reach back to his sides and even tumbles over trying to lick himself. He is primarily an indoor dog and I live in a very clean and perfectly sanitary home, alone with no other pets . The dog had a bath the day before he started this behavior and I haven't changed his shampoo for food so I cannot understand why this behavior change. He did not get injured and I was with him over the weekend almost the entire time and didn't notice any trauma. For these past two days he has been sniffing a lot and even sniffing and licking the air. He is not calming down. I'm holding him right now so he calms down and he is constantly yawning and sniffing. I brought him to a veterinarian yesterday morning and the vet inspected his anal glands and his eyes and his ears and said there is nothing physically wrong. What could this be? This dog has had the nicest and cutest most perfect temperament and is a well trained, sweet dog. It is heartbreaking to watch him do this constantly. How do I post a video? What is this?Nikki (NY)
