Dog with congenital megaesophagus eats dinner

Bella was diagnosed with congenital megaesophagus at 4 months old. Megaesophagus means that her esophagus is enlarged and lacks the muscle mobility to swallow food while horizontal. This is her "Baileys Chair," which she needs sit in while eating and for 10 minutes after she eats. She eats soft dog food with a little water mixed in. She is now seven months old and doing great.

I've seen this video on numerous websites this week but none of them mentioned that she has an illness. I like it even more now, and I'm glad to know she's doing alright!
