Frequently Asked Questions about Heartburn Medicine for Dogs
What is heartburn in dogs?
Heartburn in dogs is like heartburn in humans, an unpleasant and potentially damaging reversal of gastric fluid into the esophagus. As in humans, heartburn in dogs can be a temporary acid reflux issue that passes, or it can be a chronic condition known as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Signs of heartburn in dogs include licking the lips, lowered appetite, difficulty swallowing, regurgitation, cough and general restlessness or discomfort. If you suspect your dog has heartburn, see your vet for an examination.
