I used perlite and vermiculite mix equal portions and moisten the water only until it clumps together. Once a week I would take the lid off and move it over...

    baby westie

    The breeder knows about the problem and she said none of the others have the condition. Strange she said they were all checked about by a vet when they were born. My vet said it is genetice and Duff should not breed. I told him we only purchase our dogs for pets.

    baby westie

    I heard back from Texas A and M today. They will look at Duff with a refferal from my vet. I feel very confident letting them do the surgery because they are suppose to be one of the best vet schools in the nation. Texas A and M is about 3 hours from our house.

    When you get all the hatchlings in the cage be sure and be very careful when you open the door and shut it back. My first hatchlings I accidently caught his leg in the door because I did not see him and I lost him. I felt terrible about it but after that I was very careful and looked real good...
