Two Cans of Food in Lucy

Well, us humans and Lucy are doing okay!  I am very happy to say that we got two whole cans of food down her yesterday. Not all at once, of course.  I threw a can in the blender, then one can of water, and blended it up nice and smooth. Then throughout the day I fed her 1/2 cup of the mix at a time.  I’m so glad it was a Saturday so I could be home with her all day.  My husband has been doing so much, running her back and forth to the vet, taking care of her, and going through all that stress that I wanted to take over this weekend and do all I can for her.

She has an enlarged esophagus and the food is getting stuck in there, and the point where her esophagus goes into her stomach (I forget what it’s called) is small, and so the food is not getting through. But the very watery mixture seems to be going through okay. She did regurgitate a little bit last night before bed, I probably bed her too much at once and didn’t keep her upright long enough afterwords. And she regurgitated a little bit this morning before I got up. But this morning is also so far so good. And my timer is going off, saying it’s time to give her a bit more food!  Dealing with her Megaesophagus is not fun.

Her poop, today, was better. It was bigger, and a bit more solid. So that means the food is going through her okay and coming out the other end. Yay! We love our Lucy collie girl, and will do whatever it takes to keep her healthy and happy. Then we can all check out some Orlando vacations to bring the dogs on!
