    Really weird baby...

    Ok so I've had fail to thrive babies and all but never have I seen a baby that looked like this one.




    whole litter of 10


    with a sybling



    The eye buldges are what is really weird. Anyways, I'm debating weather or not to feed it off or wait a bit. It's very fiesty and pushes its syblings around no prob. Thoughts?

    There's something seriously wrong with it. You should go ahead and put it down so it's not suffering any longer.

    Oh. Wow. I would say it'd definitely be more humane to put it down now so it doesn't suffer. That's kind of messed up. Although, I must admit I am sort of curious as to whether it will open its eyes, and what they look like. It's not worth making the poor little guy suffer just to satisfy curiosity though.

    Do you think the eyes are big or if there's just fluid around them? Does it seem to be in pain?

    almost looks like the eyes are normal size, but the skull is too small. looks like a runt, but if you keep it i sure wouldn't breed it!!! good luck though

    No deff would never breed something like this. Only reason I'm waiting to feed it off is because it doesnt seem to be uncomfortable. It's eating and pushing around its siblings perfectly normally, acting normal... just looks really really weird. Seems strong though. When I picked it up I thought it would be weak and listless. Quite the opposite.

    But it is clearly malnourished, deformed, and un-healthy. . . Please don't keep it alive just to satisfy your curiosity.

    Just wanted to update.. I didnt see a reason to feed it off since it is so enerjetic and nursing fine. I did feel that the other 9 siblings might be edging it out though so I fostered it to another female who has a smaller litter of about a week old. She did accept it and it is doing well and has grown a bit. No evidence of suffering whatsoever. Believe me, I would have fed it if I had seen any.

    There -is- evidence of suffering. . . Just from the photos. You can see it is extremely malnourished and under developed, and has some kind of severe eye deformity, which you have no comprehension of, that could be causing it extreme pain, or be evidence of other internal deformities which are resulting in it's extreme failure to thrive. That ASF is very very sick.
