JACKY NEEDS YOUR HELP!

On 30th of August, we got a call from Mulund East, Mumbai. There was a dog who looked like a pet sitting in an auto. The auto was surrounded by barking dogs and the dog inside looked scared. We asked the caller to try and feed him but the dog was scared and wouldn't budge. Two of our team members reached the spot, after giving him some wet food Jacky came out of the auto.

Initially we thought it was a Labrador but once he came out we figured he is a severely malnourished and dehydrated Great Dane.

We managed to arrange the foster at midnight, he puked out all the wet food he had earlier and pooped blood.
After keeping him on IV fluids for multiple days, his poop was normal but the vomiting wouldn't stop even after 2 weeks.

Later on, Jacky was taken for Ultrasound and X-ray in which it was found out that he has a condition called Megaesophagus.

In this condition, the esophagus (food pipe) is dilated (enlarged in size) and loses it's motility (ability to move) which causes regurgitation, which meant the food, even before reaching the stomach is thrown out. Although Jacky really wants to eat food he's not able to retain it and pukes it all out which makes him drained out on energy and causes him pain. Due to this condition there's no muscle retention in his body. Since he couldn't be given oral meds he had to be given IV fluids on a daily basis.

Once we are able to help Jacky recover to an extent, he needs to be fed a certain amount of food so that his weight reaches a certain point as per his breed and age. Also the condition that he has is something that he'll be having for the rest of his life. He needs to be given utmost care and his feeding, medicines all needs to be managed well.

The daily cost of taking care of Jacky goes to around Rs.2000 for food, medication and IV and it may take Jacky atleast a couple of months to recover.

Inspite of everything that he goes through he's the most calm and patient fellow who just wants to be loved and give love to everyone he meets. We request each and every person to help us make this beautiful and extremely calm dog happy & healthy again.

Jacky's Bailey's Chair is finally here!

In the Megaesophagus condition, a Bailey's Chair is something that really helps to manage feeding the dog. @obijerrycarpentry was kind enough to make this chair specially for Jacky and send it all the way from Pune to Thane. We're glad to see Jacky has such amazing supporters. ❤️

The Bailey's Chair is  pretty new to Jacky and us as well so we're trying our best to figure out how we can get him used to it. We hope it helps him in the best way possible.

Jacky still needs to he given fluids and medications everyday as the regurgitation is something that is constant. Nevertheless Jacky manages to be the sweetest boy with a strong willpower.

MAJOR UPDATE ON JACKY 

It's been a month now since we've rescued Jacky. Although he's much active now than earlier, he still cannot eat properly due to the Megaesophagus condition. Inspite of meds and elevated feeding he isn't able to retain food and ends up regurgating almost everything that he eats and hence his weight has further gone done from 24kgs to 19kgs.

To find out if there are any further complications, the doctors suggested us get to Jacky's endoscopy done. Just a few days back we got it done and things do not look good. Jacky's megaesophagus condition is so severe that now it has reached to such an extend that it is irreversible. The doctor mentioned that he's reached such a point where there isn't going to be any improvement in his health. He might stay just the way he is or his health might go further down hill but the graph won't move upwards. The doctor even mentioned he is at such a point that we might have to consider putting him down.

Another option that the doctor gave us is that a surgery can be done where a food pipe is attached to Jacky's stomach. The food will have to pushed through the pipe. Although through the food pipe his body will get the required nutrients, he won't get to taste or eat anything normally. The main things that a dog lives for is to eat and play, if the food pipe is attached, we'll be taking away his favorite thing to do and Jacky is a fellow who really loves to eat. With the surgery there's also a chance of him catching a infection in the future which will complicate the situation according to the doctors. Hence we've decided not to go ahead with the surgery.

The normal management technique with the MegaE condition is the Bailey's chair. It is designed in such a way that the dog is made to sit in an upright positionion and is fed while sitting on the chair. Since the chair makes the dog sit in an upright position and eat, it gives enought time for the food to reach his stomach. Since Jacky's condition is so severe, the Bailey's chair might not completely stop the regurgitation but at least help him to some extend. Another risk with the MegaE condition is that, in such cases there's a very high risk of asphyxiation, which means when the dog regurgitates and tried to swallow some of the food back, there's a chance it might go to the wind pipe and cause pneumonia.

We've decided to go ahead with the Bailey's chair and try the best we can for him. A kind soul (tag them) has agreed to make the chair for Jacky free of cost, except that we bear the transportation cost from Pune to Thane.

Inspite of vomiting every single night, Jacky goes around with a wagging tail throughout the day, is always excited to eat and meet new people. Due to the vomiting every night he has to be given fluids everyday. Jacky is a strong willed boy and we're trying our best to help this beautiful strong boy.

UPDATE ON JACKY

Jacky isn't pooping blood anymore which is a good sign. Since the vomiting is still going on and he's already so dehydrated, he has to be given fluids everyday. As he is a large breed dog the amount of fluids and injections that he needs is also more.

Jacky is such a sweet fellow that whenever he vomits and retches, if someone calls him he'll go to them wagging his tail in such speed that it doesn't even seem like he was vomiting just sometime back.
