  1. Hi everyone,
    My name is Ruth and I have a Newfoundland called Nellie.
    She is 12y old and a Rescue , Her life has not been the best ,she has been passed around with many homes, can’t think why ,She such a sweetheart.
    When I got her she had just turned 11y old , she was taken to the vet for the once over, cysts, tumors , and weighed only 37 kg. for a Newf not good, but with the right care, I got her weight up to 57 kg,drained the cysts, and even the tumors seemed to go down.
    One happy old girl, then she started being sick and not keeping her food down,off to the vet, with x ray, and ultra sound was told she had megaesophagus. so was told to put her down,she is such a lovely girl I thought maybe something can be down, so with the help of my son we now have raised food station, and I made her collar which seem’s to help. she won’t sit in the chair and gets really upset when we try with her like it is hurting her so, does anyone else have any ideas what I can do,even what the best food is for her , she has lost weight and bringing her food up all the time, I cut all her food into little bits and also hand feed her to slow her down, I am at a loss of what else I can do,so if anyone can help me I would be so grateful , I just won’t her to have some happyness in her last days . we go to the beach twice a week as Nellie loves water like all Newf’s Oh we live in New Zealand. Kind Regards Ruth

    1. Hi Ruth from New Zealand!
      Thank you for caring for Nellie! That is a ripe old age for a Newf! Many larger breeds do not do well in a bailey chair. You can try alternative methods like sitting her backwards on the couch with paws up the back. Some do paws up on the counter. Many good ideas on our facebook pages. Please feel free to join. You might try meatballs instead of a slurry and keep her elevated after eating for 15-20 minutes. Best of luck with your Nellie!

  2. I have a 70 pound Spinone Italiano that was diagnosed with ME and MG about a month ago. She does really well during the day, no regurgitation, no drooling. At night though she tends to regurgitate. There doesn’t seem to be a time line for it. It varies each night.

    I know I need to try to keep her head upright. How does one achieve that with a large dog? I tried putting her crate on a slope. She didn’t like the feel of the crate with it sloped. Anyone have any ideas?

    1. Hello Val!
      What helps the most with night time regurg is a neck hug from wagtailfarms.com. You can also buy a procollar or a Kong Cloud e-collar. Sometimes an antacid helps as well. It is mostly due to a dogs head being lower than her body. The saliva pools in the esophagus and they have trouble getting it down. Spinone Italiano’s are beautiful dogs. We just had one of our member dogs compete in the famous Crufts Dog Show in the UK! We also just had a Spinone go into remission from MG in our groups. Please feel free to check out the facebook groups. A ton of support and helpful suggestions! Best of luck!

  3. The facebook pages say they are a closed group. I would love to join those sites and have a friend with newly diagnosed doggie with ME and she’s terrified. Are they really closed?

    1. Hi Connie,
      Both facebook groups require approval to join. You just need a facebook account and then follow the prompts for approval. Usually requests are approved within 24 hours. Your friend will find lots of great suggestions and help in these groups. You will be amazed with the amount of members in the groups and the help and support you will receive! Look forward to hearing from you soon!

  4. I am so excited to find this site! We just adopted a 1 year old Dalmatian with ME three days ago. We’ve done a lot of research, asked a lot of questions, and now want to reach out and learn even more! I was hoping you could answer a couple of questions for me!
    1- With the lickidy sticks, would my dog need to be in his Bailey chair, or could I use it as a reward system with training and positive reinforcement even when on all fours?
    2- the rescue sent us home with several several several cans of dog food. We have been using the cans with water and a little of bit of watered down hard food. Is that good? Should I be making the meatballs instead, or are meatballs an added treat to do sometimes (in Bailey chair)?
    And
    3- The frosty treats, are for going in kongs, and could they be given without being in Bailey chair?
    Thank you so so much,
    Christi

    1. Hi Christi! Happy you found our website and hope you join the facebook groups. There is a wealth of information in the groups! To answer some of your questions…1) Many people find the lickidy sticks to be just great with training. They have also used gerber puffs and yogurt melts that you would find in the baby aisle in your supermarket. Each pup is different with ME. You may find the lickedy sticks work great for training as many do but you may find that your dog is salivating too much which can cause your pup to regurgitate. It is all trial and error. 2) food. That sounds fine to start with. Some ME dogs do great with canned food mixed with water because water alone can sometimes cause problems. Some soak the kibble and mix it with canned food. Some blend dry kibble with water or other liquids like vanilla ensure or coconut milk in a blender. Some feed tiny meatballs from an elevated position. The meatballs are dropped into their mouths so they are not chewed. You can refrigerate the canned food so it’s easier to form into meatballs. Knox Blocks or “Gelatin Blocks” are great for hydration. See the recipe file on how to make and watch our own “Bully” from our group “eat them like an alligator” lol! 3) Many people give the frosty treats in kongs in the chair while they are waiting for their food to reach their tummies. Again, each ME case can be different. If you find they are really drooling and salivating you may want to only feed them while in that upright position. Best of luck with your baby! We will look for you on facebook. So much help on the facebook groups!
