    Default Does your bulldog "fly snap"/"fly catch"?

    My Tilly will sit there and bite at things in the air continuously, even when I try to distract her. Our vet, who breeds bullies, said it's a type of seizure. Wanted to know if you've experienced this with your baby, and what can be done about it.


    Also, she will occasionally compulsively lick the couch for minutes on end. Does your bulldog do this?


    Glad to jump in the pool at this forum!

    Bo will obsessively compulsively lick the couch or a piece of the carpeting at times. I have to make him stop.

    Bea loves to chase bubbles and bugs - but they're really there - it's not a seizure.....curious what other folks here will say. Welcome Kymmiko.

    I agree ! Brutus will lick the couch or floor until I make him stop! Brutus also tries to catch flies or bubbles that are there also. If there isnt anything and he does it could be a type of seizure or temor that he is having. There are a couple videos on you tube on it! @Libra926 She has all the advice on sezures and always gives the best advice!

    I'm glad you brought this up because Oliver does this as well. I was going to talk to our vet about it when he goes in for his heartworm test and pre-neuter visit, so any input from the experts on here would be appreciated.

    I distract him with a toy; first to get him to move away from the "spot" he's working on - and then to get him working on something else that's appropriate to lick/chew. I don't use a cookie because I don't want him thinking when he does that, he gets a treat.

    to EBN...... How about some pix of Tilly. Glad you joined and hope you have fun here as well as find the info you need. Princess Gracie licks compulsively whether it is the air, couch, or her paw. We sometimes can distract her with a toy but sometimes it is so intense we just let it run its course. I can be annoying tho. lol
    Again,, Thanx for joining

    This is common here I would say and not a seizure for us. We still joke about when we first got Cutty.... the breeder was thinking of showing him etc then decided she was too busy with her other show girl or what not and was thinking of selling him. So we took him home and he started doing that. We thought, well maybe he isnt right in the head and that was why she sold him? (being skeptical) Nope, turns out it is normal. I think it is due to itching? I have always thought of it as being part of an itch they cant reach or if it is bad caused by allergies. My opinon anyhow. Or could be anal glands but here it never has been. At first I thought this post was about them really catching flies. haha Mugsy woke us up 2 nights ago doing that and he never does. I would have thought something was wrong had hubby not seen this little gnat thing flying around above his head. hahaha This was at like 2am. Crazy pug!
