    Fair, walking in Cairns was a pain at the best of times. Can't wait till I can move somewhere like Canberra

    Nexium if you're not on it already for the reflux, I had it so bad it leached into my intestines and burned them, as well as burning my throat and esophagus to the point I could not talk or eat. Also look at what tends to set it off, dont just look at acidic and spicy foods you would be surprised - for me it's sugar, not just lollies and white sugar but apples cause me extreme pain.

    Hi Paul

    It's quite the puzzle how your friends can both spoil the dog and let it have fleas... but I guess it's similar to people who let their dogs get really dangerously fat.

    Glad you're seeing a specialist about the acid stuff. Hope you are doing all the diet and lifestyle stuff - eg not going to bed / sleep / lie down until 4 hours after last meal. Limiting stuff like onion and garlic and spicy food. And having the bed propped up - so things drain down (tho that would not help if the acid was going into the intestines as well).

    Meanwhile, you need to find someone to help you with your dog. Sometimes the RSPCA help - they will look after pets when the owner ends up in hospital for whatever reason... And Australian working dog rescue might be able to help with a temporary foster home for your dog until you either get better or they find a good home for her. Some of the local dog clubs might be able to ask their members to help too - I'd start with the Agility clubs and herding clubs if there are any near you.

    Even your neighbours might be able to help out with at least taking your dog for walks.

    In regards to exercising the dog, could you not hire a dog walker while you're unable to walk her?
