    I am so happy I took the time this am to look for information on this topic! These responses have been invaluable. My 1/2 ACD, who is now 3 1/2, has many of the same issues described in these posts. I’m happy to see that I have done many of the things suggested (we switched vets and he is the one who suggested how we feed her, and also using omeprazole or Pepcid). I had switched her to a harness early on because I just felt that the collar wasn’t helping her feel better. She still has episodes and as upsetting as they are, I feel better knowing I am in good company. I also like to give her some ice cream after these episodes to help soothe her throat. I do believe it is a combination of stomach acid, irritating her throat, coupled with some anxiety, at least in her situation. I think I will go back to using an acid reducer again. Sometimes, she just doesn’t want to eat her breakfast which doesn’t help the acid build up situation. I’ve said it before, this dog was meant to be ours! She has many of the same “issues” my family members have…lol! Thanks again for all these posts; keep ’em coming!!
