“My 9 year old Welsh Springer Spaniel mix, Max, didn't have much of an appetite and would frequently vomit. He would often rush out to eat grass and then vomit afterwards. I was worried because he was thin and it was like he had acid reflux. I followed the Ask Ariel diet program while using supplements such as
Gastro ULC, Power Probiotic and Soothing Digestive Relief. l really wasn't expecting much because I had made prior changes before and those hadn’t worked. Within just a few days, Max stopped eating grass and his vomiting stopped. Max is now at a healthy weight and it is so nice to see him so happy to eat his meals." - Karen, Orange County California
Cats and dogs can get heartburn and acid stomach just like people do. It's painful and symptoms can be hard to detect. You may hear gulping noises, loud stomach gurgling or your dog may be rushing to eat grass and vomiting afterward. But a lot of times, the symptoms of heartburn in cats and dogs may be more subtle (such as not wanting to eat as much in the morning) and the condition may go undetected for some time.
Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) is the backflow of stomach acid and intestinal fluids into the esophagus. The fluids can damage the lining of the esophagus, causing inflammation and discomfort. What causes acid reflux and heartburn in cats and dogs? It is typically caused by poor digestion, food intolerances or allergies, hypochlorhydria (low stomach acid), intestinal dysbiosis and bowel disorders.
Acid reflux and GERD can be very painful, but the good news is that with diet changes and a few natural home remedies for acid reflux, your pet can get much needed relief quickly.
