Aussie came to Larimer Humane Society as a puppy, surrendered by a breeder due to a birth defect called “megaesophagus”. The ailment makes it difficult for animals to eat and digest their food, which often presents additional medical complications.
Knowing that this condition could be treatable with surgery, Larimer Humane Society’s veterinary staff knew just where to turn. Skilled surgeons at Colorado State University’s Veterinary Teaching Hospital were able to correct Aussie’s condition in order to help him eat and digest more naturally.
A little bigger and after having made a full recovery, Aussie’s adoptive family reports that he has a new issue -- a serious case of the wiggles! This joyful pup finds it almost impossible to keep still.
