Born at 4 ounces Bree dropped down to 2.5 ounces in one day. She was the runt of her 7 pup litter. With a cleft lip and cleft palate. After 3 weeks of tube feeding Bree has finally pulled through. Now that she has been eating food on her own for a week she is one of the largest in her little and....

****Pure miracle*****
her palate completely fused together so she no longer has a cleft palate. She still has a cleft lip which is just a "cosmetic issue" now that she eats on her own.

Just thought I would share her story incase anyone out there with a cleft palate pup or hears of one and thinks that euthanasia is the only option for puppies like Bree.
THESE GUYS CAN BE SAVED AND ARE TOTALLY WORTH SAVING!:love5:

This is Bree tiny and frail at 1 week 2 days old (5 ounces which is 1.5 ounces under weight)

Well, that IS a miracle! Yay! Will be anxious for further updates and to watch her grow. She's obviously not having any problems eating now. ;) Truly great news!

what a great story she looks great i had a cleft palate puppy in my litter and i cried and begged the vet to put a tube in and let me feed her by tube but they told me there was no way she would survive and she would die in agony of aspiration of the lungs it was heartbreaking decision to make and i often wonder what would have happened did i make the wrong decision i wonder :(

she is such a sweetie well done x
