What is the best food for a dog with megaesophagus? I have been using BilJac, but it does not rate well.
First and foremost, do you have a Bailey Chair? (Google it. You can buy or build). We had a megaesophagus dog pass through our rescue and the chair saved his life. As far as type of food, he excelled on high quality canned. We used Merrick, Wellness, and 4Health from Tractor Supply. If anything we poured out of the can was a large chunk, we just smashed it with a fork. For kibble, which he got sparingly, we used the same brands and softened it with water. We also added cooked ‘people’ foods–ground beef or turkey, chicken, eggs, etc to get his protein up. By the time he made it to us he was VERY skinny and malnourished and being treated for a variety of other health problems (some related, some not). That’s a hard diagnosis to get, but stick with it!
