Burping, Gagging, not quite throwing up
I have a 3 1/2 year old Havanese named Maya. She has always done a bit of burping, gagging, and not quite throwing up - but it seems to have gotten a little worse lately. It's like she throws up just a bit, gags on it, and then swallows. Very strange. I'm just wondering if anyone has any experience with this. I also wonder if it might be her diet. She has always been a fine eater until recently she has slowed down in her consumption but begs more than ever, and seems really hungry. I was feeding her Iams and then did some searching online. Some indications seem to point toward acid reflux. One person recommended switching her food to Purina One Smartblend. I did that and she gobbled that down consistently for the first 4-5 days. Now she is starting to leave some of that behind. The burping, gagging, and not quite throwing up has continued. Just wondering if it's serious enough to bring to the vet or if there is something else I should try.
Thanks for any input!
