Candy is young female dog who has mega oesophagus, this means that the food she eats does not progress correctly into the stomach unless she is stood up to eat and kept standing for at least 10 minutes to enable the food to enter her stomach.

She needs to be fed 3 times per day.

This is inoperable, and unless she eats this way she is at risk of aspiration pneumonia.

When she was first rescued she already had pneumonia.

Candy was found at the end of September starving to death close to the village of Pedralba. She was taken to the refuge. She kept vomiting and coughing so was taken to the local vet where they diagnosed her mega oesophagus.

She was 8kg when we found her and is now 14kgs.

She is a little beauty and very mischievous.

Adoption fee is £200.
