French Jessie – Medical Hold

11/15/20: Please welcome French Jessie! She is a French Bulldog that was born with a cleft palate and turned over to us by her breeder. She is 5 weeks old and currently under one pound. She will be tube fed every two hours for the time being while we get her stable. Her cleft is open in the front of the mouth but closes off as it goes towards the back of her mouth.

11/16/20: French Jessie saw the vet today for an x-ray and sonogram because of slight head shake. They suspect hydro frontal opening and fluid on the brain. We will put her on medication to reduce pressure. She is eating 20ml every 2 hours and has already gained two ounces.

11/18/20: French Jessie is six weeks old and a little over a pound. She is making steady progress with weight gain. She is not loving the tube feeding so we will try kibble soaked in goat milk next.

11/25/20: French Jessie is seven weeks old and now weighs 2 pounds and 1 ounce.  She is so full of life & doing absolutely amazing. She is eating hard kibble and drinking water. She started her medication today for her hydrocephalus.

12/9/20: French Jessie is nine weeks old.  She is eating hard kibble now with no issues.  She will see the vet in a week for her first round of puppy shots.

Franch Jessie is not a available for adoption at this time. It will be a few months before she is able to have her cleft palate surgery and she will not be available for adoption until after that time. You are welcome to complete an adoption application for her and be put on a wait list.
