haha... yeah, kewl! Pricey take a pic and post it too, i wanna see ur landing stripe

oh yes, Mrs. bubbad. those flanged ribs r kinda tricky to capture. at some angles ya don't see it at all. the pics below we were trying to take pics of my ribs and my 'skinnies,' but not focused on the flanged ribs.

we really should try to take a pic of just the flanged rib. if i get a bettah one i'll post it.

i also need Estha's computah skillz--> she knows how to write an arrow in the pic? but i'm not technologically advanced to do it...!

Archie has that too. I never knew what it was called, but I had seen it before so I was never really worried about it.

Hmm. Bertha has that too. But, since she the first dog I've ever owned, I didn't know it was a deformity. Just figured that's how the ribs are supposed to be. Ignorance is bliss.

Fred's a "flanger" and a "Mr. crooked paw". Flanged ribs and a crooked right leg. Had them both checked out, but the vet saw nothing to be worried about. Some might call the deformities, I say they add character! As long as he's happy and not in pain.

Fred- Basset Hound, rescue (approx 3)
Trixie- French Bulldog, adopted/re-homed (5)
Brewtus- Boston Terrier, born spoiled (13)

Mine is about three month's old. She does have a rib cage. Would it be correct to see it as a flanged rib or will she "grow into" it?

Correction to the post above. I meant "large protruding but symmetrical rib cage".

Olive had a significantly flanged rib as a pup. It's gotten less noticeable as she's aged and filled out, but every now and then I can still feel it, mainly when she's on her side. This photo isn't the best, but it's all I could find on this silly little iPod. Sorry! Flanged Ribs?-imageuploadedbypg-free1350788267.021497.jpg

It hasn't caused her any pain or medical problems, by the way.

My puppy had them at 3 months, but as he grew bigger at 5 months they went away. I'd say if you have a young puppy don't worry about it. They'll most likely grow out of it. Puppies seem to grow unevenly in my experience.
