Symptoms of Reflux Esophagitis in Dogs :

Pay particular attention to pets that start vomiting within hours to days of anesthesia, as anesthesia-associated gastroesophageal reflux (GER) is a common cause of esophagitis. 

  • Vomiting

  • Gagging

  • Foaming

  • Retching (I didn't know what this meant, it is when the dog is making a odd movement with their neck)

  • Regurgitation (I thought this was vomiting, it isn't. It is when the dog brings up their food not broken down)

  • Excessive Salivation

  • Gulping 

  • Difficulty Swallowing

  • Loss of Appetite

  • Cough

  • Weight loss
