  • 1.  Puppy With "Swimmers"

    Posted 04-24-2024 08:01 AM

    We have a very responsible breeder whose female bully recently had three pups with "swimmers."   Two of the babies are up walking now and are doing great.    They are 6 weeks and have received their vaccinations and deworming.    He is going to sterilize both and either keep them as pets or find them good homes.    The third will stand to eat but is still pulling itself around with all four legs stretched to the side.   Options from the vet are multiple surgeries or euth.    Does anyone have experience with this birth defect?    If I could get a wheelchair is that an option?    Any ideas?    Thank you.
