Home Remedies For Spitting Up Froth
1. Fix A Feeding Schedule:
Fix a particular type of feeding schedule in place. This is one of the most important ways to lower the frequency of your dog’s regurgitation or vomiting.
Divide 3 meals into 5 - 6 mini-meals and introduction of a healthy late-night snacking right before sleep to decrease the night fasting period.
Careful with your food measurements and don’t overindulge.
Some vets recommend feeding a little food in the morning.
2. Experiment With Food And Feeding Positions:
Ensure your dog stays vertical for about 15 minutes after you feed.
Gravity takes care of everything and helps in the motility of the stomach. Water can also be given in this manner.
Modifying the food to a different texture or trying out new foods is a good option you will find out what is good for your dog - solid foods or liquid foods.
Roll the canned food into small meatballs. Make your dog swallow the meatballs. This will stimulate esophageal motility and food will pass through the esophagus without any difficulty.
Always consult with your vet before giving any medications.
A prokinetic agent: (e.g. cisapride, 0.1 mg/kg orally; metoclopramide, 0.2 to 0.4 mg/kg orally; erythromycin, 0.5 to 1 mg/kg orally).
H2 blockers: Pepcid, Zantac or Tagamet.
A gastric mucosal protectant: (e.g. antacid or H2–receptor antagonist, sucralfate).
