Sudden excessive licking
My yorkie suddenly started licking himself quite frequently on his back where his back leg is; what could this mean? He licks himself so much that his fur gets all knotted. I don't see a rash or redness or anything on his skin? Anybody have any idea? I thought I heard before that if dogs lick themselves it meant they were in pain; is that true?

If he's licking only 1 leg, then I'd have that leg thoroughly checked out. If he's licking his paws, then I'd think allergies as that's the cardinal sign.

Probably your yorkie has an allergy that is why he's licking excessively. You need to bring your lovely yorkie to his vet in order to properly discuss the problem.
