Smacking lips at night

My mini smacks his lips at night when we all go to bed. He sleeps in my bedroom on his own bed.
He only seems to do it in the middle of the night, occasionally getting up for a drink but not often.
He drinks plenty of water and eats Royal canin sensitive digestion.
He has a very very sensitive tummy and can only eat his kibble NO TREATS

I suppose he could have tummy acid due to his sensitivity.
I will try some pepto bismol, thanjs

Smacking lips at night

My VET said they did this sometimes when the stomach is upset. We had to start giving our miniature schnauzer 5 mg of pepsid a day.

Max does this!!
by: Linda and Max

Max also smacks his lips in the night! He often does it when he is thirsty.
I honestly don't think it is anything to worry about. See if you can coax him to have a drink of fresh water BEFORE he goes to bed and make sure he has access to water at all times.
