Another cause of not eating well would be any of a range of swallowing disorders. there’s a good video on canine swallowing disorders on youtubecreated by Dr Stanley Marks DVM at UC Davis , GI tract expert with great interest in such disorders.. megaesophagus would be included in this categoryAnother method to know for megaesophagus is use of the “Bailey Chair” which supports the dog in a position where his spine and espophagus are upright in a vertical position, thus gravity helps the pureed food move downwards.. One can find plans for building such a chair on the Web.
Hi there! Thanks so much for the tip. I have a 15-20lb beagle mix and a 70lb golden lab. The lab has had a skin condition for YEARS! Complete with hotspots and constant scratching. And our vet(s) have not been able to figure it out. I tried treating for food allergies, fleas/ticks/mites, fungus, and so many other ‘suggestions’. And the little beagle is showing signs of (what I’ve been told) doggie eczema. So….I have tired garlic….I’m going to start today and will update on my progress. Question, can I give them a garlic supplement? Or is fresh garlic preferred?
Thanks again for your post.
