Esophagitis

Esophagitis / GERD / Gastroesophageal reflux disease

Herbal treatments for cats and dogs to help relieve esophagitis caused by gastric and acid reflux.

The complexity of the immune system requires a multidimensional approach of nutritional factors directed at facilitating balanced, normal immune function,  and is not intended to be suppressed or stimulated.  A healthy immune system promotes healthy cellular and tissue response and the body’s defense mechanism and promotes healthy cellular response, to protect against invasion by potential allergens and pathogens, for most types of viral and bacterial diseases and diseases and for all types of inflammation and auto immune diseases.

Esophagitis is a condition that describes the irritation and inflammation of the esophagus (the tube that leads from the back of the mouth to the stomach) as a result of a continual backup of gastric and intestinal fluid into the esophagus.

This fluid consists of acid, and if left untreated can lead to swallowing difficulties, bleeding and ulceration of the esophagus. It causes severe discomfort and is often quite painful for your pet. Esophagitis occurs in both dogs and cats, although younger animals that have a congenital hiatal hernia tend to be more susceptible.

This condition occurs as a result of many conditions including:

excessive vomiting

swallowing caustic or chemical substances

general anesthesia

hiatal hernia

cancer of the esophagus

reflux of gastric or intestinal juices.

Common symptoms and signs include:

salivation

reduced appetite

persistent gulping

coughing

regurgitation

swallowing difficulties

anorexia.

Helpful suggestions:

Feed your pet high quality commercial food or an all natural diet that contains all the essential vitamins, minerals and nutrients, free of corn, wheat, soy, meat by products and preservatives

Avoid feeding your pet high-fat foods and replace with a low-fat, low-protein diet

Avoid feeding your pet late at night as it may contribute to pressure in the stomach causing the reflux

Make sure that your pet does not ingest any caustic substances or foreign objects

Feed smaller meals, several times a day to relieve episodes of esophagitis

Give your pet some honey to alleviate esophagitis and protect the esophagus
