I've gotta say, I don't think it's that rare. It may not be an everyday thing, but puppies born with MegaE aren't that unusual. Most of the long term breeders I know have had at least one puppy born with MegaE over the years. You don't hear about them because many/most are euthanized quite young, prior to placement. In many cases, that *is* the most humane thing to do.rufusmom said:My 4 y/o boy was diagnosed with megaesophagus 3 months ago. He also had his 1 st seizure back in december. Any others out there with dobes with megaesophagus? This is a rare condition so I was curious to see if there are others with same thing.
