    @cali~jenn, I think you might be on to something with the allergy connection. Oliver has allergies and the other two do not and Oliver is the only one who does this. He also does lick the blanket on our bed at night for about 5-10 minutes before he's ready to settle down and go to sleep. That, I think, is just his way of self-soothing. Kinda like a little kid sucking their thumb. We've never had any issues with anal glands here, so I don't think his biting at the air has anything to do with that either.

    I haven't heard that it is a type of seizure but that it is linked to the head tremors in some way, that whatever causes it is similiar to what causes the head tremors. Samson does the "fly snap/bite," he was doing it last night and I was trying to catch it on video to post to this thread but he would stop as soon as I picked up the camera then start again once I put it down, such a brat! LOL He will also lick the couch, a blanket or his paws compulsively. I know the paw licking is part allergies but its also an obsessive thing and definitely an obsessive thing when he does it on the couch and on a blanket.

    @cali~jenn Your post on the allergy connection reminded me of something while I was searching online for answers. Perhaps it's itchiness from post-nasal drip.


    Since Tilly is doing it as I type, I described it incorrectly. She actually licks the air compulsively and it drives her daddy crazy!

    @BruceP Thanks for the warm welcome! Pics of Tilly will be on the way. As we probably all think of ours, Tilly is the most beautiful bulldog ever

    I don't know but I imagine it could be from anything really. Cutty can't scratch well at all being that stout body type so any thing making him scratchy could cause it probably. Lol

    I don't know about the fly catching/air licking .... maybe if you could get it on video?? I have heard that something like that can be connected to epilepsy @Libra926

    As for the licking, well better get used to it, as all bullys seem to be OCD and licking seems to be a popular one!!!

    Almost like she has something stuck on the roof of her mouth? Our neurologist calls it a bubble gum fit. A facial seizure. More of a bothersome tick....like an eye twitch for us.

    that's what Oliver does most of the time but every once in awhile he'll throw in a "snap at the air" move too!
