Little Puppy With Cleft Palate Is Nursed To Health

| Filed under: Dog

french bulldog lentil cleft palate

Lentil is a little French Bulldog puppy and he's super cute.

He was also born with a cleft palate and deformed snout.

He had a sister named Edamame but sadly she died shortly after being born.

But Lentil is hanging on!

The little guy was taken in by a foster parent through the French Bulldog Rescue Network and is now being nursed to health.

He's fed through a tube every three hours and gains about an ounce a day!

The heavier he gets and the bigger he grows, the better his chances are of receiving corrective surgery.

He's just such a little cutie we hope that he can get the surgery and be able to eat on his own and live the life of a happy, healthy pup!

    I'm glad he's doing well. Last year my dog had a litter of 5, and 3 of them had this problem. We tried to save them, feeding by tube and contacting a vet that is specialized in this kind of cirurgy, but unfortunately they died 3 days after birth.
