Dog most likely has Megaesophagus
They have to eat sitting upright like that otherwise food doesn’t reach their stomach properly and they will throw it up.
Common with certain breeds of dogs or dogs with Addison’s Disease.
Source: My pup has Addison’s disease and for a time we thought the has this as well.
The chair is called a Bailey chair if anyone is curious. Pretty easy to train a dog to sit in it, but they have to be in the chair for several minutes after they are done eating to ensure the food has properly reached their stomach.
@shocking60, it does I remember this reddit post 15/10 goodboi
That's a neat party trick
It’s only convinces me that you can teach a dog how to build a nuclear bomb as long as there’s food involved
Some people should not be allowed to have pets.
@JoeNES, I have seen this clip before and people have commented that in the full video they explain that it has a condition that this helps. Something with the esophagus I think or it prevents stomach flipping (what killed Marley in Marley and me).
That seems cruel.
Let dogs be dogs, THAT'S WHY WE LOVE THEM!!!
@InsaneAnimeCleavage, cruel is a bit of a stretch. Feels more unnecessary more than anything else. If your dog makes a mess or eats to fast just get a slow feeder bowl lol
@InsaneAnimeCleavage, it might be like the dog that can’t eat normal, they have a esophagus problem and have to eat sitting up ?
@Natural Sarcasm , plus some dogs are prone to intestinal complications when they eat... if they sit up right then gravity works its magic! Not cruel at all
@seeUpee, I know Dobermans and other barrel chested dogs are prone to bloat. Some even get surgery to staple their stomachs down to prevent them from flipping. Either way if it’s medically related the owner will inevitably have to come up with a different solution when the dog gets old
@Natural Sarcasm , imma give you a great example! My folks Rottie! She gets bad gas... like baaaaad gas if her bowl is on the floor. My folks raised the bowl to shoulder level and no more gas! Her vet is so impressed... tried to figured out what made her have gas and is like the way she swallowes up her food that made her swallow more air.
@Natural Sarcasm , my buddies Great Danes where so tall , when they ate towards the floor, it made them bubble guts, like a 250 pound dog liquid firecracker, they raise their food to about 3 feet off the ground and no more issues
@seeUpee, huh that’s interesting, also strange cause the opposite happens to blue. When I feed him at work he eats off the ground and at home he has a raised feeder. But it’s only on our days off that he gets the bad gas
@seeUpee, oh this just came to mind. So my brother has this condition where the sphincter that connects the esophagus to the stomach couldn’t relax to let air out. So if he needed to burp he literally couldn’t. I wonder if that’s something that can happen to dogs. It just seems like if the issue was swallowing air the dog would just burp it out. Hell blue let’s out 2 or 3 massive burps after eating every meal
@Natural Sarcasm , they has stomach issues for a while, they where tall to where they had to suck in more air to get their muscles in their throat to swallow harder and bring the food into the body, but when they eat Strait on , they don’t breath as hard and damage their stomach, they did at one point need stomach surgery sadly
@DrSin, I get it in theory but the esophagus is an interesting muscle, at least in humans. We can literally eat or drink while upside down as the muscles in the esophagus contract like waves forcing everything into the direction of the stomach. And we can only breath after it’s passed the valve that allows airflow into our lungs. I wonder if/how different this is with dogs
@Natural Sarcasm , I’m telling you! Raise Azuls bowl at work too and watch him become a whole different dog. I did not believe it till I saw with my folks Rottie...
@seeUpee, I’m saying 5 days a week there’s no gas, the days I work. The two days he does it’s when we’re home on our days off and he has a raised bowl lol
@Natural Sarcasm , oh... maybe is the shjt food you prepare him... gives him gas
@seeUpee, or maybe it’s cause he’s more stimulated at work and burn more calories. Either way fvck you, I guarantee I fed blue better than you fed Oliverio growing up
@Natural Sarcasm , #doubt
@seeUpee, what did you feed him??
@Natural Sarcasm , oh someone got offended ahahahah
@seeUpee, and someone’s diverting the question
@Natural Sarcasm , nhaaaaa cuz we both love our bois and I know we both give’em really good food
@InsaneAnimeCleavage, my Dog has Mega esophagus and we have to feed her in a vertical chair by hand. Then we have to leave her in the chair for 15 mins after feeding. Believe me I would like nothing more than for her to just be a regular dog.
@InsaneAnimeCleavage, It is for a serious medical condition. Can’t remember the name.
@InsaneAnimeCleavage, it's a bailey chair, it is used for dogs with megaesophagus so they don't regurge everything they eat
I wanna see what happens to the bowl when he exits
