Looking for opinions and people who have had experinece with kinked tails in a litter of pups.
I have spoken with my vet and a few breeders who have had litters with kinked tails and I am searching for more information and input on the subject. So far I have heard it contributed to Genetics, Nutrition, and Over Crowding of the uterus in a large litter.
So any thoughts, opinions, or experiences to share? Thanks a bunch!
I do know, or am pretty sure its genetic, I know for a fact genetics has something to do with it. Our Staffordshire has one and his mother had one, and I know his brother has one. I wouldn't breed a dog that produced kinked tails, some people don't care about it. I don't care he's a pet anyway, but, throwing in my two cents, that I believe its genetic.
I believe it to be genetic as well but figuring out where it comes from is the hard part. My female who threw a kinked tail previously had a litter with no problems. So I am thinking it has something to do with the Sire's side and am in the process of a detailed surch of his lines to try and locate the cause before considering breeding her again. Thanks for your 2 cents!
I had a mini Doxie that had a kinked tail. She also produced a pup with a kinked tail. I did not breed her. She was bred when I rescued her. Both she and her pups were altered and placed in pet homes. What makes me sick is I did track down the original breeders. One was a vet, and knew about the kinked tail, and did not care, and did the breeding that produced the female I rescued. Not a very professional thing to do.
