Split lip in Jack Russell
by: Brenda

I don't think it's common but it is not uncommon. If he was born with it it could be a cleft lip. If not it could have been cause by dryness. Have you tried Dog Snout Soother. It's a natural product for dogs with nose issues. It could help. Vit E oil might help as well.
