Hello, this is Dr. Schmidt. Thank you for using JustAnswer. Does he bring anything up when he is gagging? Any vomiting or diarrhea?

Ok, I can give you some advice regarding the gagging. A lot of dogs will gag when they are having some acid reflux. I would try Pepcid (0.25 mg/lb every 12 hours) which is an antacid that can help with acid reflux. If he is still gagging or starting to vomit, I would take him in to the vet, but the Pepcid will usually be enough in mild acid reflux cases.
