"My vet thinks that Megaesophogus was a misdiagnosis. He thinks he has an abraded throat. He is confident my dog will be OK."

"Please let me know when you have seen your vet; I will be happy to talk to you. I had a foster with megaesophagus and have known several other dogs with the condition. I may be able to help. I am one of the rescue's co-founders. "

"Hi Ron,Dogs with MegaE can live good lives with a few adaptations. They can be fed in an upright position, often using what is called a Bailey chair, and looks like a child's high chair. https://www.baileychairs4dogs.com/There are many…"

Profile Information

Where are you located?
Nekoosa, Wisconsin
Tell us about yourself and how we might help you:
My dog starting throwing up 3 days ago. He is 2 years old, and the best dog I ever had. He loves our grandchildren, and they love him. I went to a 24 hour vet. The first one missed the diagnosis, but the second one nailed it, but didn't communicate how serious megaesophogus is. My dog can't even swallow his own saliva or a cc of water.
Do you currently own a dog? If not, have you owned dogs in the past? Any other pets?
Walter is a fountain of love. He is so gentle, even with newborns. I never heard of megaesophagus, and think I might have to euthanize him, as he can't sleep, or eat. I am just looking for information, but realize you probably can't get back to me before I go to my own vet tomorrow morning.
If you are looking to adopt a doodle, why have you chosen this mix?
no

no

Hi Ron,
Dogs with MegaE can live good lives with a few adaptations. They can be fed in an upright position, often using what is called a Bailey chair, and looks like a child's high chair. https://www.baileychairs4dogs.com/
There are many other resources available. It depends on how severe the condition is and what other health issues there might be. 
Megaesophagus that develops after puppyhood is somewhat rare and is usually linked to some other health condition. Please make sure to get a thorough and accurate diagnosis before making any decisions about your dog's future. There are other health conditions that could cause vomiting and the inability to keep water and food down. Pyloric stenosis is one, and there are many others, and they are treatable.
