Dog With Rare Condition Requires Special High Chair to Eat

Tink is a Labrador Retriever from Grand Rapids, Michigan that suffers from a rare condition known as Megaesophagus. Basically when she eats, the food doesn’t go down to her stomach.

The food just kinda sits in her esophagus and Tink eventually throws it back up. So when she goes to eat, she hops into a special high chair called a Baily Chair.

Tom Sullivan, Tink’s owner, says, “After she sits in her chair, this is a normal thing, for about five minutes we burp her, as crazy as it sounds. And then we do a throat massage where we get deep in the esophagus and help all the food go down.”

Umm….. are you sure we didn’t drop any of my dinner dad?!? #tinksullivan #megaesophagus
