Details: Puppy was diagnosed with severe megaesophagus which cannot be controlled with elevated food dish and holding upright after feeding.  Also seems to be a problem with the valve that lets the food empty from the esophagus into the stomach.  Consequently, the puppy regurgitates many times throughout the day.

Puppy also has developed severe hives.
