Customer Question
He keeps sucking his...

He keeps sucking his tongue

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is the matter with the dog?

The dog keeps sucking his tongue in and out non stop

Veterinarian's Assistant: Where does the dog seem to hurt?

I notice that he keeps sucking his toes but the tongue sucking is separate from that his toe digging is something else

Veterinarian's Assistant: Can you see anything that looks wrong or different?

Nope I thought he had lost weight but my girlfriend says no but he drinks a lot of watef and he did not eat this morning I was out of the country for a week

Veterinarian's Assistant: OK. Nothing visually obvious. What is the dog's name and age?

Buddy 6 years old

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Buddy?

Let me ask you this my house seems to be in a zone where a large number of electromagnetic waves are present could that effect him
