This is Morgan, my GSD, at 6 weeks old, after being diagnosed with MegaEsophagus. I would carry him around in a “front pack” for 20 minutes after every meal. As he grew bigger, I would use a child’s walker. I also have his full-blooded sister, Ruby, who was also diagnosed with MegaE. Here is also my Coton de Tulear, Doodle, at 6 weeks old in his Bailey chair which my husband built for him.

I have been very active in the MegaEsophagus groups, both on Yahoo and Facebook, for the past 9 years, offering support to others and have also re-homed several MegaE dogs throughout the U.S. I am currently offering support to two families in my area that have MegaE pups and am an ambassador to promote awareness of this disease among both professionals and dog owners.
