Hi everyone, it's been a while since I was here last but been so busy. The pups are growing well now (4 weeks old) and walking quite well. I have bad news about one of them though. I noticed she wasn't breathing well at times so took her to the vets today and an x ray has shown that her rib cage hasn't developed properly. Instead of being almost tube like it is a more flattened shape. I'm waiting for the vet to speak to a specialist and call me later today but she said she wasn't sure if there was much that could be done for her and it was possible she may have to be put down but She also did say that pup may develop enough to live her life but she would need to be in an environment where she wouldn't have too much excitement. I'm feel so sad for her and so anxious to hear back from the vet. It doesn't seem to be a severe case however as she has been the first out of the litter to walk properly and she is playing with her sisters still. Has anyone ever had this happen before?
