    Little sick puppy was pts. All the rest of the litter passed their vet check.

    While it didn't have a classic cleft pallet, it was a little too flat at the back of the mouth and this was obviously enough to cause problems.

    Mum passed her vet check also

    The kids are very upset. I'm kind of relieved.

    Thanks guys.

    I always check at birth, and did it again when she wouldn't suckle, but when the vet put his light on it you could see it was actually further to the back.

    As he said it was touch and go.

    Well guys, you may be interested to know that my vet asked if he can use little Sicky (who was pts) and several foals that have been born recently with defects to the council in his fight against having the roadside sprayed with weed killer.

    I know the father has no history of cleft palate because his breeder is a friend, and have just been off the phone from the mums breeder also no cleft palate history.

    The vet said there has been a high incidence of this just recently and our street was one of those sprayed because it has some conservation areas and the council doesn't want the weeds on the roadside getting into these areas.

    So little Sicky may become part of a fight against the spraying of chemicals without the locals having some sort of say in it.
