    Default Hello from Ontario, Canada! Bully with cleft palate.

    Hello!
    I am new to this forum, and will soon be adopting (I hope) and English Bulldog puppy with a cleft palate. I don't have a lot of information on him, other than he hasn't had any major health issues due to his cleft and that he can eat as long as you water down his hard food a lot. Apparently the cleft is large enough that and index finger could fit in it... Poor guy! I know a black lab with a large cleft palate, and she just eats larger sized dry kibble with no issues. Hoping this fella will be the same! But we shall see.

    I currently have 3 dogs. And am quite knowledgeable about dogs in all aspects. Hoping that I will be the right fit for him, and him for me! Any advice on cleft palate Bulldogs would be amazing.

    There is a Facebook page called For the love of Ruby and is about the rescue of a Pitbull with a cleft palate. You might find it helpful.

    my abbey had just a cleft lip.. not the palate , it wasn't to much of a problem for her until she got a little older , it seems like everytime she drank water it would go up her nose so we did have a little cosmetic surgery on her.. you can still tell it some but shes happy and that makes me happy.. hope your dog don't have to many issues with it.. here is a pic of my abbey but not sure if you can tell it..
