Acid Stomach in Cats and Dogs
What Is Acid Reflux in Cats and Dogs?
How can you tell if your pet has acid reflux? Cats and dogs with acid stomach, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), heartburn and similar conditions cannot tell you when they don't feel well or what is hurting them. You have to pay close attention to their behavior and symptoms. Acid stomach can be very uncomfortable and painful, but with diet changes and a few natural supplements you can give your pet fast relief.
Cat And Dog Acid Reflux & Heartburn Symptoms
Acid reflux and heartburn in dogs and cats is a painful condition that is often impacted by diet and food allergies.
Common symptoms of acid reflux are:
- Lack of appetite, especially in the morning
- Regurgitation of undigested food shortly after being consumed
- Eating grass (if large amounts and vomiting after, some grazing on grass is normal)
- Regurgitation noises, burping, gagging and gas
- Hunching over after eating
- Licking or smacking of the lips
- Restlessness or pacing after eating

An optimal level of stomach acid can keep the digestive system free of bacteria, yeast and parasites.
Diet For Cats and Dogs With Chronic Acid Reflux and GERD
Antacids provide temporary relief from heartburn and acid reflux, but the real problem is poor digestion caused by food and intolerances. Many of the best selling, premium brands contain allergens or starchy carbohydrates that can cause a variety of digestive problems and lead to a weakened immune system. Many dogs and cats with heartburn and acid reflux do well eating a limited fat and protein diet and by having a few small meals spaced throughout the day.
