    Defaultacid reflux?

    Is there such a thing as acid reflux in dogs and how do you know they have it? Dale will occassionally barf up bile out of the blue. Or will barf up his dinner from the night before (and why is that dogs dont chew most of their food?) in the morning. Its not all the time, just occassionally. His poop is fine, nothing out of the ordinary.

    Yes. Rider occaisionally gets 'heartburn' and will have to take a tagament. But you need to have your dog evaluated by the vet before you just give meds.

    I agree with Garth in the other thread. If your pups whining and vomiting, there could be something wrong. Get him checked at the vet. Hopefully, he's not whining from pain.

    No the whining is not from pain. Its just him "talking". If he knows someone is coming over, he'll sit in the middle of the room and whine and whine until that person gets here.

    He's got a vet appt saturday so we'll see what they say, just wanted to throw it out there to see if anyone elses dog did the barf thing.

    I'll be interested to see what the vet says.. please let us know!

    Do you know if the vomit/bile was digested or undigested food? If it's undigested, it could be a condition called megaesophagus, when the esophagus can't move food down to the stomach.

    Wiki just started on an acid reducer in hopes of stopping him throwing up. We are hoping it works. The Dr. suggested a bland food for him too. Hope Dale gets some relief soon.

    Update: Vet thinks its from the dry food, combining with the water and expanding in his stomach. She suggested splitting his meal into 2 times a day to see if that helps. We'll try that and see if that helps. Again, its not all the time, just once in a while.
