They might want to have that gut test done, or just get it some poop capsules from the place.

I know someone that has a dog that shows a lot of the behavior described above.  The person has taken the dog to the vet many times.  Well, you can imagine how well THAT goes...

Abnormal Behaviors Aren't Always Psychological: Compulsive behaviors can be caused by medical issues.



Quote
As veterinary behaviorists we commonly see dogs exhibiting bizarre repetitive behaviors. Examples of repetitive behaviors seen in dogs include flank sucking, fly biting, light chasing, spinning, tail chasing, hind end checking, self-licking, and licking of objects or surfaces. These behaviors may be caused by compulsive disorders, which are described as repetitive, ritualistic behaviors that are performed excessively and interfere with normal daily activities.1 Compulsive behaviors are often initially associated with situations that cause conflict or frustration and are later displayed in other situations when the dog is agitated or excited.2 They can occupy a large percentage of a dog’s day and negatively impact the quality of life.

Study identifies genetic mutation behind disk disease in dogs


Quote
"Dogs with intervertebral disc disease (IVDD) are 50 times more likely to have this mutation; that's an incredibly strong correlation with disc disease," said Dr. Danika Bannasch, a UC-Davis veterinary geneticist and the paper's senior author, in a university announcement about the study. "Being able to identify the cause of this painful condition is the first step to alleviating pain and suffering for dogs at greatest risk."
