Group Description

Group support for owners of dogs that have, had, or may have Megaesophagus, a disease of unknown cause. Megaesophagus, in which the esophagus loses muscle tone and enlarges due to lack of enervation, results in the inability to move food and liquid to the stomach, causing regurgitation, which may also cause aspiration pneumonia (which can result in death), and ultimately starvation.

This group was established in 2002 in memory of Rusty, Dave and Katy's beloved golden retriever.

ATTENTION NEW MEMBERS:
Please check out helpful information in the "More" ("Files," "Links", and Database") and "Photos" above, or, to the left if you are on classic Yahoo, and not NEO.

ATTENTION VETERINARIANS:
We invite your membership and any suggestions you may have as we continuously seek to improve our information and support for those in need of help dealing with what used to be a very ominous prognosis. Our collective hands on experience in the day to day care of these dogs may be useful to you as well. Please be reassured that we are careful to remind list users that other than our list volunteer adviser, who is a DVM. We are not veterinarians, and we urge those seeking information to take ideas back to their dog's own doctor for discussion to tailor the best plan for their dog.
