Hello?
Expert:  Dr. Michael Salkin replied 10 months ago.

I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Your Pit Bull X's symptoms all indicate gastrointestinal distress but not the etiology of that distress. Can you think of anything he may have ingested that might have brought this on? How old is he? Does he have a predilection for chewing on or ingesting non-food items? Conservative therapy for addressing the nausea and discomfort of gastroesophageal reflux (acid reflux, GERD, heartburn) involves the dosing of an over the counter antacid such as famotidine (Pepcid) at a dose of 0.25 mg/lb and repeated in 12 hours if necessary.

Please respond with the additional information and further questions or concerns if you wish.
