just tonight i was feeling the top of keona's head where her molera was or still is and i have always thought it was closed but.......

her skull has like a rise in it (hard to explain) , like her scull has over lapped or over grown , it is in a line and goes straight up and down , its about 1 1/2cm long and about 2ml to 3 ml wide , at one side of it it seems to still be open the same length and width of the rise in her scull .

just wanted to see if anyone has an idea if this is normal ?

i will get the vet to have a look next time i am there although the vet has never felt her head to check it before ,i also don't think my vet gets a lot of chihuahuas in as they arn't very common around here so any feed back is very much appreciated .

The skull kind of stitches itself together so its normal for you to be able to feel where that happened. Trigger's has been closed since 9 weeks old but he's always had that seam.

That makes me feel a lot better :) , with her being my first chi i haven't had to deal with my dogs having a molera , the only time i have ever felt one was on a puppy at a dog show i went to but with the puppies they didn't have the seam line so was a bit freaky when i first felt it , i had a few crazy thoughts running through my head i can tell you that lol .

just get the vet to have a look, or give that breeder a call that we met at the last dog show.
