Bailey chair wanted for oesophageal stricture and dysmotility problems

Hi, our beautiful 'cheeky monkey' Darcy has been poorly since July after eating an unusual pebble and refluxing during the operation to remove it. She has been in and out of Bristol Veterinary hospital for balloon dilation treatment after she developed a stricture.

They have been wonderful vets and are still investigating dysmotility which may be causing Darcy constant problems.

I collected her home today for a week till she returns for another treatment and whilst we are feeding her 'sloppy food' with her paws on the worktop  (How we normally try to do to stop them doing this!) have been advised to make a 'Bailey chair'.

This was invented by a couple whose dog had megaoesophagus and you can download instructions to make one, however our woodwork skills are not great and I just wondered if anyone knew where  we could purchase one from?

There are some great u tube videos on Bailey chairs and maybe we just need to ask a carpenter, but I thought I'd ask first.

Many thanks,

Sue and Nick Britton

She looks so at home in her chair,you must be so proud of how shes coping.Really pleased for you all that things are taking a positive turn.
