Thanks Stacy, I was looking everywhere for those!

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™

Also, I think I read on here where bed/bedding licking may have to do with acid reflux? It's an indication of it maybe? She started doing that right before we found her elbow issue. Just the bed, or whatever she's laying on, but often near her elbow... This is 100% a new behavior. Wondering if she's maybe still got some stomach upset. Can anyone direct me to that article? Maybe where the idea came from that bed licking may equal acid reflux? 

  

I just wanted to share my experience regarding the licking - our Zeus has been on raw diet his entire life and early on he had these episodes of licking everything in sight, from rugs, floors, beds, towels, air, anything in sight which would usually settle down after a piece of food or a treat. After one bad episode and a trip to the vets office we were told that this is usually caused by nausea and upset stomach (acid etc.). Since then, we started feeding him small meals three to four times a day to keep his belly running/full and it has not been a problem unless he missed a meal due to being on the road, traveling etc.  He recently had a bad reaction to Palladia which caused him to stop eating for a few days and the licking came back. However, once Palladia was out of his system and he started eating again he was fine. So in our case, "licking" episodes are due to nausea from an empty belly!

Wow. This just blows me away. I think of all the times our Jerry went crazy licking things and we had no clue that it was because his belly was upset. We just thought he was OCD. Thank you for educating all of us, I'm forever grateful for this community. This topic deserves a Tripawds Nutrition blog post!
