Description

I have a Papimo puppy just over 4 months old that we are looking to find a special home for. PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE DESCRIPTION. She has a condition called Mega esophagus. Basically her esophagus is a bit too long for her and doesn't work perfectly to move the food to her stomach, so this requires special care for feeding. She needs to be fed and kept in an upright position for approximately 25-35 after eating. The food needs gravity to help move it into her stomach. We have ordered a special chair called a Bailey chair which will help keep her in the proper position. If she is not kept upright during and after eating she will regurgitate her food which can lead to weight loss. If the food does not move into her stomach it can also stay in her esophagus and lead to ulcers which could also be dangerous or life threatening for her health. She's had extensive medical testing and vet care to properly diagnose the issue and they have developed this strategy to help her have a long full life which is likely with the proper care. She also needs a soft food diet by giving her wet food or hydrated dry food made into a soft mush. She needs to be fed 3-4 times a day right now as a puppy in smaller portions. This could possibly be reduced as she get older, but smaller more frequent meals will be best for her. She is a VERY sweet puppy who loves her cuddle time and people. She is happy to be held for the time she needs after being fed with light tummy taps. She is currently around 4 lbs and May get up to around 10lbs. I love this dog, but she needs more than I can give her having 3 other dogs and 2 cats. She is a pup from 2 of our other adult dogs, it is not a hereditary condition. The mother is an American Eskimo about 13 lbs and the dad is a papillon about 12 lbs. Our other 3 dogs besides her are extremely active. She would do better in a quieter home, perhaps as the only dog or with a more senior or quite breed. New owner will need to spend most of the day with her!
