Sponsor Animal Update: Toby
Toby: 4th Quarter 2009
Toby continues to surprise us with his determination. Although he suffers from Megaesophagus, a condition in which his esophagus is abnormally enlarged in its lower portion, which makes it difficult for him to digest food, he has learned to live with it better than most of us could! To digest properly, Toby needs to remain vertical after eating in his human baby chair. In addition, he has a history of acute hepatitis, which is an inflammation of the liver, but he takes his medication without any hassle. He simply wants to run, jump and play just like any other healthy dog. Thankfully, that’s exactly what he does.
