Our Bichon Frise is 14.5 and looks like a 5 year old and acts like one. EVERY time he comes in from outside he flies like a lunatic through the hall, in the family room, runs around and makes noise and runs all over the kitchen and back in etc! He does not show his age when it comes to activity. His only health problem is he had lymes a few years ago and he did have an operation for bladder stones and is on perscription food and is fine. He has never had allergies, does not have hot spots, does not have yucky brown spots like a lot of older white dogs and never had the around the eye stains until recently. He has some because for the last couple months he makes a weird low whine even when he is sitting with us and I know he is crying. He constantly licks his bed, he licks the computer cord that is in front of him, he licks a few spots on the carpet, he licks his other three beds around the house and tonight I looked over and he was licking the chair and that CAN NOT CONTINUE. (I tried bitter apple and he likes it) We very rarely give him house food. I took him to the vet she said he looks great, she felt around he did not whimper or cry at all for her and she was really poking she said. I got antacides thinking he might be sick. Tried a few days, nothing. Got all natural anti anxiety tablets from the vet to give twice a day, that is not helping. He does have cloudy eyes so I know there is some anxiety with that because I can't get up and go anywhere without him following me and it is driving me crazy! However, he has no problem trying to jump like a circus dog to get food off the counter and it's not even within reach and if he can sneak out of the house he will and start wandering the neighborhood. He is going outside much more frequently to go potty. I have no idea what this whineing and licking can be but honestly it is driving us all carzy. I have no problem getting blood work but what for??? If anyone has had this or has an idea please help. Thanks!
