Remember Your Beloved Pet
Just feed them ?

I caught my dog frantically licking the floor in the middle of the night last night. I took her outside and she started eating dry leaves off the driveway.

When I came inside, I noticed her bowl was empty. I fedd her some small treats, which she gobbled down, so I gave her some of a leftover hamburger from the fridge.

She seemed to immediately get better.

Not sure why this happened, but feeding her did seem to help.

She has a history of a weak/acidy stomach.

Could she have had an acid stomach, thrown up somewhere hidden, then gotten really hungry later? I hope you find a good answer.
