Miles was a stray dog that came to us with an embedded collar that damaged the nerve in his trachea causing Mega Esophagus. He spent over 30 days in the hospital fighting for his life. Mega E is not fixable and he will struggle to keep weight on and battle with bouts of pneumonia for the rest of his life.
Miles can not eat or drink normally because he does not have the ability to swallow and hold food down properly. We spoon feed him 3 times a day and he drinks from a water bottle. He's not at the point where he can run around with out regurgitating so he is walked on a leash only.
Despite all of this Miles is a happy guy that just wants affection from everyone and loves to give hugs. Due to all his medical needs Miles is one of our barn residents, he will be with us forever.
