Hi there!

Few questions for you:

1. When did this behavior first begin?
2. How frequently do you notice the behavior (e.g. constantly, every hour, once a day, etc)?
3. Is it just her nose Rosie is licking or the side of her mouth/lips as well?
4. Do you notice anything on her nose or side of the face, between the hair that looks abnormal to you?
5. How has her appetite been lately?
6. Any recent vomiting or diarrhea?

Thank you!
