A. Sorry, I also meant to add that dogs can drink water while in the Bailey chair, and you can also get sufficient water into them by making a slurry of canned food for them to eat. Have your vet help you calculate water requirements for your dog - most experts consider 70 - 100 milliliters per kilogram of body weight per day to be optimal - and you can potentially get all that into him in the form of a canned food slurry.
A. There is a device called a Bailey chair (easy to find information via Google) which is designed to put a dog into an upright position during feeding and to maintain that position for 15 minutes afterwards. Most experts feel that this is the most optimal position for feeding dogs with ME in order to minimize the risks of aspiration pneumonia.
