Today, my dog started frantically licking up lose pieces of hair, grass, and carpet from off the floor and outside. She then ate and threw up. She is now licking the entire floor trying to get pieces of hair from any crevice on my floor. She seems to be gagging too. Is the normal or should I rush her to the hospital?

Sept 18, 2009, nine days after you post your question, I have a small dog who also started this behavour today. It's very annoying. I have given her milk (which I never do) to see if she can drink, she can. I gave her a little piece of cheese to make sure she could eat, she can. We have two dogs, and the other dog sheds. She is lapping up her hair off the carpet when she can find it. She threw up a couple hair balls. I took her outside and she ate grass like mad. She seems to settle down for a while, and then she starts up again. It's making me nuts!! What's going on!??

My dog has the exact same issue. It is becoming a more frequent occurance and I have no idea what to do for her. No answeres from anyone yet? Quite strange and concerning, especially now that she discovered some carpet she can pull pieces from!! Help!
