We went through this with our Clyde, who suffered with chronic aspirate pneumonia from the time he was a puppy. We worked with a veterianian nutritionist who formulated a home cooked diet for Clyde and we hand fed him two times a day. If he ate on his own, he ate too fast, making the risk of aspiration too great. Home cooked diets are alot of work and proper supplementation is vital, but we were happy to do it for our sweet boy. In return, he gave us eight wonderful years of joy and love. An added bonus of Clyde's diet... no gas :-) Praying for your boy... they really have a way of grabbing hold of our heart strings!
