Last night, Yoyo started madly licking his upper lip, almost like he has peanut butter stuck in his mouth and he's trying to get it off. He doesn't do it all the time, only periodically, but it is something new, and I'm wondering what's wrong with him. His muzzle isn't swollen and I can't see anything in his mouth or on his nose when I look. There is a little tiny pimple-looking bump on his bottom lip but I can't honestly remember if it was there before his licking started. He doesn't look like he's in distress, it's just something weird that he started to do. Any ideas what it could be? Does it warrant a trip to the vet?

it might be an insect bite or some kind - maybe from a spider or a wasp . does it look like there may be a stinger ..
usually if there is a bite of some kind there is a local reaction with some sensitivity or swellling ..
We need Kimberly !
