Customer Question

We have a berniese mountain dog and she is 5 years old. She has started to do loud gags every so often and wants out to eat grass. If you let her eat the grass she will throw it up. We are doing the pepside when she does this and some times zantax. Both seem to slow it down after about 45 minutes. She is eating well and we don't let her out after eating to run around due to bloat issue that can occur. If you touch her throat some times you can cause the gag. What next? Vet appointment in three weeks.
