Dissect tcp packet with 0 length


I'm writing a packet dissector and would like to dissect TCP packets with zero length (ACK only packets). I would like to do this to add additional information to the packet info column. I'm able to do this with other TCP packets with my dissector, but it seems as if the 0 length TCP packets are never passed off to other dissectors. Is this correct? Is there any way I can get those packets passed on to my dissector?
