Hi this is Dr Brown. I’ll do my best to help you and Buppy!
I am happy to give you some options for managing reflux. What are you observing with Buppy that makes you concerned for this?
He has major reflux and he's been taking probiotics from PetLab that were working great but I noticed his lower eyelid stayed drooping when he takes it. He burps about
Ok thank you. Can you tell me what kind of dog he is and how much he weighs?
He lost his left eye to cancer 2 years ago and developed SARD in the right eye 4 months ago and is now blind. His activity has decreased. He is mixed but mostly Lab and we is 80 to 85 lbs
For a dog that size the best option for reflux would be omeprazole (Prilosec OTC)- they are 20 mg tablets and you can give 2 tablets once a day. You can also go up to twice a day if once a day is not surfing
His appetite is still great but he is sleeping a lot. Thank you
Of course. Is there anything else I can help you with today?
No thank you
I hope I was able to answer your questions - please feel free to reach out if you have any further questions!
