About 2 weeks ago my dog started constantly gulping with his

About 2 weeks ago my dog started constantly gulping with his mouth shut and then starts licking the floor and everything. When this happens he gets upset. It is like he does not want to gulp but he cannot make it stop. He wants to go outside and eat grass and lick the mulch. He gags but never really throws up. If I let eats the grass or licks the floor too much he will throw up some but mostly the grass or dirt he just licked. If I get him to sit next to me and pet him, he will start to calm down and then I can rub his belly and the calmer he get the less gulping he does but if I stop it will get bad again.This happen about 2 years ago and our vet was thinking GI issues. We had blood work done and everything was normal. It was suggested that we get an ultrasound; we did the Ultrasound of the GI area and an X-ray of the esophagus both of which did not show any issue. We spent about $1000 and did not get any answers as to what was happening. After about 2 weeks the issue went away. It would flare up every now and then but not as bad or for as long.This past week the issue flared up again and has not gone away. He eats and drink very very little, not enough to sustain him for a long period of time. He wants to eat, he keeps walking over and looking at it and if he eats a couple pieces the gulping starts and he just walks away. I took him back to our vet again, this time and they did the complete blood work, urine test, and fecal test. Everything was negative or in normal ranges. They suggested we take our dog somewhere for an endoscopy test. I called around for prices and the test costs between $1500 - $2000. We don't really have the money to spend on the test but we will find a way it if it's going to tell us how to fix this issue. I'm concerned if we spend the money for the endoscopy and nothing is found, we won't have money left to try something else.We would like your opinion on how we should proceed to get the care our dog Finn needs. Finn is a Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier, 5 years old, on a prescription ZD diet. When I took him to the Vet they did give him and Antibiotic, Pepcid, CERENIA. None of that made an immediate difference. I also started giving him 2 tablespoons of pumpkin puree just to get some fluids into him. Which he loves and it may start a small episode but I can get it to stop. I have also go him to eat the dry food if a soak it in water first.

Hi, my dog is constantly making these sounds that sound like a hiccup, along with spasmodic neck movements every time he makes the sound (kind of making it look like he's about to vomit). He occasionally hacks and coughs in between these sounds.He took a blood test 2 days ago, and the results turned up fine. What do you suppose is going on?

Bella has been vomiting for a week now. She started last

Bella has been vomiting for a week now. She started last monday night, was taken to the vet on Tuesday. Xrays were inconclusive, she was given a hydration IV and Cerenia. Wed she was sick again and on thursday given a barium xray. The Barium moved all the way through and did not indicate a blockage. She ate very little on Friday and nothing since. She vomits when she drinks too much water. She appears very lethargic and wobbly, could the cerenia be causing this?JA: I'm sorry to hear that. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the dog?Customer: She is a 3 year old pitbull, always been very healthy.

I have a 14yr old chocolate lab. I brought her to the vet

Hello. I have a 14yr old chocolate lab. I brought her to the vet yesterday because when she woke up from a nap, she was a completely different dog. She could barely walk and wouldn't eat. Her eyes were also different. They diagnosed it as vestibular disease. Gave her a shot and some steroid meds. Today she started doing this thing with her back left leg where she is dragging it but she is walking a bit better. Now I'm noticing her eyes are pretty much closed a lot. I'm not sure if she was diagnosed right?JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?Customer: Yes I don't see anything. She drags it like it's asleep or she has no feeling in it.JA: The Veterinarian will know what to do. What is the dog's name and age?Customer: Her name is ***** ***** is 14JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about molly?Customer: She's been having heavy breathing and shaking. She ate this morning but wouldn't eat her dinner do I have no way to give her her pills.
