Dogs with ME have a dilated esophagus due to lack of muscle tone, which causes food to sit in the esophagus rather than travel to the stomach. Reyna’s ME is very mild and is managed by making sure she eats and drinks from an elevated feeder. EPI occurs when the pancreas does not secrete the enzymes needed to digest food. Reyna’s EPI is managed by adding a supplement to her food.
While this may seem overwhelming, both conditions are being well managed in her foster home and Reyna is a curious and happy puppy. She is ready for a family willing to love her and work with her to manage her special medical needs.
