Breed: French Bulldog
This sweet little girl will always be a special needs dog and she will require a special needs home for sure. She’s not ready for adoption but I’m just putting that info out there for all the world to understand.
Cassandra is starting with small meatballs to feed her while she sits in an upright position, she also needs to drink her water this way, after eating she needs to sit upright for about 20 minutes to avoid anything coming back up which then would continue to flare up her esophagus. Some of the medications that she needs are specialty meds and they have been ordered and shipped but are not here yet, mainly the viagara and once that arrives we hope to help calm this girls digestive tract down and get her feeling better.
He will start her on several medications, Sucralfate to line her digestive tract, Pepcid, and the new drug to use on dogs like her is Viagra. They don’t know why it works, but they are having some amazing results with it. He will wait for the results of the two tests to come back and see if she needs any further medications. He will send instructions on how to feed her, but we’ve already discussed her sitting upright to eat. I asked what did he want her to eat and he said we have to try various things. Small meatballs, some do better with gruel, some do better with kibbles. We will be ordering a Bailey Chair for her to help her eat and drink while sitting up and hope these medications help. She is a pretty miserable little dog and doesn’t feel good at all. She needs a lot of help and we will do everything we can to make her feel much better than she does now.
