Finding a suitable place for your pet to stay is an integral part of your holiday preparations if you're a cat owner. Usually, the process of finding somewhere and booking in your cat doesn't take too long, but before you make any hasty decisions, you should make sure your cat is ready.

Acid reflux is a relatively common gastrointestinal health condition that occurs in all breeds of dog. The condition can present when the sphincter muscles, which connect the stomach to the oesophagus, are weak or damaged. The sphincter muscles should prevent gastrointestinal juices from flowing backwards into the oesophagus, but when the muscles do not work well, these secretions, which contain bile salts and stomach acid, can damage the delicate tissue of the oesophagus and cause inflammation.
