Stop my dog from licking the carpet

Our 13-year-old Shi Tzu is constantly licking the carpet. She suffers from congestive heart failure and is taking Theophylline for coughing and Enalapril for the CHV. Her appetite is good and she seems active enough for a dog her age. Any ideas why she has to lick the carpet? By the way, she licks both acrylic pile and Persian carpets, and she does not seem to prefer any particular place--she licks lots of different places.
