    Only me again. I went to vet for follow up today and took 10 day old puppies for health check. Anyway after getting home I fed the puppies twice. One of the pups sneezed and a tad of milk came down his nose. I don't worry. Had just put new vet bed in and only washed a few times so assumed fiber had tickled him. Any way second feed noticed he'd got milk all over his face through nose everywhere he was filthy! Cleaned him up. He seems well in himself but I'm worried about this bit coming down nose. No cleft pallets/defects anything. Puzzled. Will call my vet first thing or am I just panicking. I have noticed as they get bigger there is a lot more hustle and bustle for milk and puppies seem to end up in some unfavourable positions, could this be a cause? X

    I would think he has maybe been pulled off the teat too early snd was still mid suck:)
    If they have been checked then I would chill and just keep wee eye.

    I've had this happen with a few pups...They fared well. They were all greedy pups. It was a relief once they were on solids.
