The Robinsons were very careful with the puppy’s feeding and care. They knew there was a risk of aspiration pneumonia that commonly occurred in bottle feed pups. So they took every precaution.
But then one day they started to feel that something was wrong. The puppy was sneezing, he was not pooping, he wasn’t hungry, and milk bubbles were coming out of his nose. They watched him closely, but in their heart they knew something was wrong.
They took him to the veterinarian took x-rays and did many tests, and finally diagnosed the puppy with an esophageal abnormality. The puppy’s esophagus had a pouch that was trapping the milk and causing his aspiration.
The puppy was given heavy IV antibiotics, some time in an oxygen chamber, and finally he started to regain his health. He was a fighter, and was not giving up. As long as he had a chance, the Robinsons were not going to give up either.
Doctors don’t know at this time how severe the puppy’s esophageal problem is. They will have to wait until he gets older and they are able to do more specialized tests.
But for now, the puppy is doing well, eating again, and he’s not burping or blowing bubbles out of his nose. He has found his voice again and enjoying life.
Today, the puppy is five months old. Mark hopes the puppy can help teach kids that being different is okay. You can follow him on his Facebook page.
