Default Excessive licking

Enzo has always been a licker but starting last night he seems to be licking excessively, on me, himself, the couch. None of this is by itself unusual. It is just the amount and frequency of licking. He is a 1 year old spoo. I looked at his mouth and his teeth seem fine. He does chew up his toys and I wonder if he got some fuzz in his throat. I can't see any problems and I checked his muzzle, ears, mouth. He doesn't seem to be hurting. I gave him a dentastick, and he is drinking water and eating ok. It just seems odd. Or may-be I am just being paranoid. Any ideas?

Excessive licking can be a sign of mild nausea. I had a Rottie who had inflammatory bowel disease. She always licked a lot but when her gut was a bit upset, the licking was so bad she'd leave big wet patches on herself and on her bed.

Thank you for that information. He seems better today but I will keep an eye out for an upset stomach. I really appreciate the suggestion.
