I had an appointment to get my flu jab on Saturday 24th October 2015 at 10 am. I had the flu injection by a doctor, and I felt absolutely nothing, nor had any side effects. But then, I was ushered to another queue for a pneumonia vaccine. I was not really asked if I wanted it, was not checked in any way, or asked any questions, and before I knew it, someone injected the vaccine! I am over 65, and have had a lot of lung infections, and even got pulmonary embolism , so, think it might be a good decision after all, but, would have appreciated to have been asked, and warned about the painful shoulder which followed! Anyway, it is done, and if it works, it would be wonderful, as, not having to suffer all the chest infections I usually suffer every year lately.
Hi Gail! That sounds like a behavioral issue. I’ve heard when dogs lick each other, it’s a sign of submission, and when they lick you, it’s a sign of affection. It’s literally how they show they love us. It can be problematic though if you dog is nonstop licking.
There are a number of theories to get your dog to stop licking so much. You could consult a behaviorist for a single session and see what answers they might have for you, since they will be able to dig deeper into why your dog might be licking so much—maybe he has separation anxiety? It’s hard to say what to try without knowing more.
