We love our animals and they give us unconditional love and companionship in return. We call our dogs “Man’s Best Friend” and we incorporate them as part of the family. So, how far would you go for your dog? Would you let them sit at the table, like a member of the family? This one dog has that dubious honor.
Tink is a Labrador Retriever, who has a digestive issue called Megaesophagus. It is a condition that effects humans and animals alike. It causes the esophagus to perform improperly, where it doesn’t carry the food down to the stomach. Because of this, it can be fatal.
Most of the time, people don’t look at their pets as worth saving. In Tink’s case, his owners have gone above and beyond to make sure Tink has a great quality of life.
As you can see Tink sits in a highchair, which helps him keep his food down. He got to this point, when his owners brought him home and noticed that he couldn’t keep his food down, which lead them to bring Tink to the vet, where a battery of X-rays and tests determined that not much could be done for him, other than have him sit up when he eats.
It also racked up a massive vet bill of $4500. The owners are dedicated to keeping Tink as healthy as possible, but they are asking for help in paying for their bill through a GoFundMe account. And because of Tink’s popularity on the internet, they are (as of this writing) $400 away from their goal.
