    Default Crooked spine/possible MBD


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hi,

    Just picked up this Tremper albino Mack snow juvenile at a show this weekend. When I got it home I noticed the spine or ribs seem to be malformed. Would this be something genetic? Or a birth defect? Would it be able to breed in the future or even live a healthy life? Input welcomed

    I would not breed a malformed leo.

    Can you contact the breeder?

    The breeder said it does look to have a bent spine/ribs. He was adamant that it was not genetic but I’m not so sure. Was disappointed when I got hime and noticed the deformity.
