    Thanks Jessica, and yes Max has a plastic raised Double Diner feeding tray holder. Has stainless steel bowls. We got it at Petsmart.Today we tried the feeding less and a bit more often. Seems to have helped. Thanks. Mike

    to EBN!!! I agree w/the gang… you need to have Max seen by a reputable bully vet. Please keep us posted...

    Took Max in yesterday to his vet. Dr. Kelly McKee and found out she is a graduate of University of Georgia .Myself and my wife and Dr. Kelly all discussed Max's problem and she asked us to leave Max for a few hours. She would give him a small amount to eat and drink and keep a eye on him. Also had his nail trimmed , anal sac expression, internal parasites exam, Parvo Vaccine, Distemper Vaccine and Rabies Vaccine.
    Everything checks out normal. Skin and coat ok. Eyes ok. Ears ok. Nose and throat ok. Mouth, teeth and gums all ok. Musculoskeletal ok. Heart Normal rate and rhythm ok. Lungs ok and Gastrointestinal ok. Did several x-rays.

    No small esophagus or Mega Esophagus but evidence of a elongated pallet
    She told us to try Pepcid after each meal(20mg). And a Xanex twice a day. Watch him for 1 week and call or bring him back in.
    I really did not get any good news and I don't feel any better. I think there is something else going on.Mike-img_0254-jpg

    So today is day one of what she is suggesting? Did she mention anything about reducing the palate?

    Gosh he's good looking, I bet she loved him too being he looks like he's part of UGA's clan!

    I understand the Pepcid but what did she prescribe the Xanex for?

    There's a bully in our rescue who does the same thing. Diagnosed with hiatal hernia. Meds have seemed to help. He's much better. I'm not sure what med the vet is giving him. Strongly suggest you have Max examined by a vet well versed in our English fur babies. Good luck.

    Truthfully Max does not seem to be any better.. I read a post by a couple in Japan in the military with a Bulldog with the same problems. Throwing up food and water and trouble breathing and they had the elongated palette surgery done. Said GusGus is much much better. I guess this is our next step. Mike

    do you have a knowledgeable bulldog vet? or a vet with experience in the flat-faced dogs?
