IDGSR Welcomes Daisy into the Rescue!
UPDATE: With a foster mom willing to take a few extra minutes a day feeding Daisy properly, she has gained an average of 3 lbs/week. She's up to 63 lbs and doing great. She is a very active dog and loving dog.
Darling Daisy is just that, the sweetest girl you'd ever meet. Daisy is a gal who came into the rescue with a digestive problem that required vet attention and she was diagnosed with adult onset Mega Esophagus. However multiple test results were negative,her tests were very good and she is healthy in every way. The vet said her case is Idiopathic, no known cause, that it can heal itself and she can improve. At this time we are feeding and have taught Daisy to stand up to eat her food at the kitchen sink. While this may seen odd, annoying or a lot of work, it's what Daisy needs to expand her diaphragm in order for her food to get into her tummy. We then simply walk her over and we sit down and she puts her front legs up on our lap and we have 'hug time', for at least 10 min. We keep her in an elevated position so the food can go down thoroughly. While some folks use a 'Bailey Chair', at this time this is working for Daisy.
She will most likely need to keep eating at an elevated level to ensure she can keep her food in her tummy.Daisy needs a committed adopter who will be able to deal with her special needs eating, otherwise Daisy will make a great companion, walking partner and Friend.
If you would like to make Daisy a member of your family, please apply with the rescue.
