Scruffy pretty much summed it up. I have also heard that low protien and low fat (around 20% and under 10% respectivly) can help too. Works well for our boy, he has it due to his Mast Cell cancer. He still gets flare ups every now and again, but the acid controller(famotadine) and probiotics and the food have helped to reduce the reflux. He is also on benadryl to controlled the over production of histhamines from the Mast Cells.

Dog Health > Kennel Cough?

Maybe its an allergy? You said that it is mostly in the morning, I have heard that nighttime coughing can be related to heart issues. But not really sure of the details. I wonder if bordatella vaccine is similar to flu shots in the way that they protect against the most common strain but not all of them.... shrug But then again your other dog would probably be coughing too I would think.thinking

Dog Health > Discharge from only one eye?

This usually happens to Tucker when he gets a scratch on his eye or an ulcer. Being a boxer he is prone to these, nicknamed "boxer ulcers". It also could be an allergy thing but I would think in that case both eyes would be affected. shrug Most dogs recover just fine with an antibiotic eye drop and a couple days of pain meds so they don't bother it ie rub it while its trying to heal. However, Tucker's usually requires a trip to the eye specialist after a few weeks of "the normal" treatment.

Tucker has suffered from acid reflux for some time now. Here about a month or so ago he had a bad flare up and I was trying everything! His is also due to large amounts of histamines released from his history of mast cell cancer. He was on max doses of benadryl (for the histamine release) and max dosage of pepcid as well as eating 4 times a day with snacks in between. I finally read somewhere that high protien and fat can trigger excess acid production too! I had him on grain free food thinking I was doing him a favor, but I guess not. I switched him to Solid Gold Holistique Blend dog food it is very low in protien and fat as well as grain inclusive which is I think helpful in these acid producing conditions. since the food change I have gone back to twice a day feedings and lowered both his pepcid and benadryl doses to minimal! And so far no flare ups! I might add that when he was at his worst when he wasnt spitting up he was constantly salivating and air licking! And that has stopped! Hopefully this will help, I know different things work for different dogs but it may help aim you in a direction that can help.

If it seems like such a small portion you are feeding or he seems hungry you can always use green beans to bulk up his meal a bit without adding alot of extra calories.

I agree with Tucker laugh out loud. I also use the iceland pure unscented sardine and anchovy oil. Seems to work great.
