What's a Bailey's Chair?

A Chippie Update


Chippie chair profile 234.jpg


A Bailey's Chair is a custom made feeding tool for dogs that have trouble passing food down the esophagus and into the stomach. A number of reasons can cause this. In Chippie's case there is a blockage that caused a pocket to form in her esophagus and the food gets stuck in the pocket. Additionally, the nerves that massage the food down and into the stomach aren't working. The feeding tube bypasses the esophagus and the chair positions the body so that gravity can help do the work.


Chippie's condition was caused, in part, by very strong drugs given for a different reason. Those who treated her had good intentions that backfired.


She needs surgery to repair the esophagus but she is too weak from lack of nutrition right now. ECR has promised to build up her strength, repair the damage and allow this 8 month old puppy to live a full and happy life. However, medical expenses are taking a serious toll on our piggy bank.





The Running of the Chihuahuas









Due to high winds and unseasonably cold temperatures expected Sunday, May 1, ECR must postpone our biggest fund raiser of the year. Check back with us on Tail Wagger News or on our FaceBook page for notice of the new date.



Chippie's surgery is scheduled for May 12. Proceeds from The Running of the Chihuahuas are needed to cover the costs of her surgery.
