VOMITING- Megaesophagus?

Hi again,

I have spent this afternoon researching possible causes of Lily's chronic vomiting. I saw a post of someone else with a Boston Terrier that had a similar problem and they said it was megaesophagus. I did some research on this disease, and apparently if you hold the dog in an upright position for 10-15 seconds after they've eaten, it can help the food go into the stomach. I've tried it after her dinner tonight, and it seems to maybe have helped- she hasn't gotten sick yet! Even though this may work, I"ll probably still take her to the vet to get a diagnosis. Basically, I"m posting this to see if anyone else has had experience with megaesophagus. If so, I'd love to hear more about it and any tips you may have.
Thanks- y'all are great!

Please do not reopen closed threads. Your dog needs a diagnosis from a vet, not the internet. Please post an update after you get results.
