Then, we noticed he was a wry face. He had a birth defect that causes the muzzle to be twisted. Sometimes the deformity is too bad and the cria doesn't survive. But he was feisty and we decide to give him a chance. Well, it turned out that he was able to nurse. He was gaining 1/2 lb/day.
So far, so good, We named him Snuffles because he made a snuffling noise when he got excited because his little twisted muzzle effected his breathing a little. We knew he had a long road ahead of him, as sometimes there are unseen issues as well.
