First of all, acid reflux is due to a weakness in the esophageus where the tube comes from the stomach throuogh the chest. Really is not due to allergies, although some foods make it worse. My chi, Zarita, has this, and is taking 1/4 tablet of Pepcid, over the counter, prescribed by the vet. This calms the irritation and heartburn (if dogs have heartburn?) She has been on it for years. I tried many foods and nothing made it better. She still has some reflux, but it is better.
