Friends, we had this litter of 10 pups back on the 3rd - and so far everyone seems to be doing great. They've all opened their eyes, and are all crawing around except for the fat one who can't seem to support his own weight yet. But yesterday I noticed something unnerving.
Yesterday we were checking on the pups, and looking each of them over, and noticed that one little female seems to have a crook in the tip end of her tail. She seems totally healthy otherwise, but has basically a right angle bend in her tail, about a half inch from the tip end. I touched at it, and it didn't seem to hurt her. It seems to bend straight down. She's able to crawl around like her brothers and sisters, and has her eyes open, and nurses normally, too.
I've never heard of this (of course, this is the first litter we've ever had) before. Any advice? I can't imagine how I missed this in the past. The vet must have missed it when he did their dewclaws several days ago, too.
