Sturgill has a condition called megaesophagus. To put it simply, his esophagus is enlarged and has a hard time getting his food into his stomach. This results in regurgitation, weight loss, and the potential for aspiration pneumonia. Megaesophagus might sound complicated, but it is completely manageable with special care – including diet, medication, and eating meals in a device called a bailey chair, which holds him stay upright as he eats. Eating upright opens up the esophagus so that gravity can help move food safely to his stomach.
Like Sturgill, Wadsworth also has megaesophagus. But that doesn’t stop him from being a fun loving and playful pup!
