Hello, I'm new to this forum so hope this is the right place to post this query.
I have posted on the oesophageal reflux site for my concerns regarding my four year old standard poodle Douglas . As part of my ongoing investigations into how to help my boy I've looked at sensitivities and allergies. I wondered if anyone has tried the DNA test ? and if so was it of any use. I'm struggling to know where to start with a novel protein source for Douglas as he has been tried over the years with all sorts of meat to try and ease the problems. He also regularly finds himself dead rabbits to eat as I live in a rural area.
 I think venison and kangaroo are the only ones I can definitely say I haven't tried over the years. I wondered if excluding some specific food stuffs might help or am I better with trial and error?
Any response would be much appreciated

Introductions / Gastro Oesophageal reflux

Hello, I'm new to this site and looking for advice /guidance to help my 4 year old Standard Poodle. He has intermittent flare ups of gastric reflux. This makes him vomit , lip smack, retch and cough. He paces about at night obviously in distress. He also has pica ( eats mud and roots)
I have tried him on low protein/low fat diets. Raw( he didn't like it ) Wet food including Naturo, Forthglade and Lily's kitchen. The flare ups still continue and I can see no pattern to link the food to the problem.
He is on Pure at present Turkey terrific but still vomiting bile and froth. Vet just put him on omeprazole and recommended Prescription food but I am doubtful.
Any help would be much appreciated.
