Barnaby, The Special Senior Years

My poor old boy had one of his swallowing incidents last night. DH and I took turns taking him out, where he ate LOADS of grass. This happens roughly every three weeks or so, I have spoken to the vet about it and he just said to carry on with the antacids. Barnaby seems more comfortable and ate a light meal and is sleeping now. I feel really sorry for him as he gets really frantic when this happens. Paws crossed he will be ok for another couple of weeks, of course I worry every time it happens!

Poor little guy. I wonder if you kept him on the antacids all the time, if you could avoid these episodes ???

Love is always hopeful and endures through every trial.

I was wondering that too, Clyde took pepcid twice daily to keep his tummy in check.

That's interesting as I asked the vet the same thing. He said that he didn't see the need as he wasn't in discomfort all the time. I am going against his advice on this one and give them to him daily. If it doesn't work fair enough, but we shall try.
