Anyone had any experience on feeding a cleft palate puppy she is a week old Saint Bernard, we have tried syringe but she refuses it, we bought puppy feeding set which is way too small teat wise, using standard baby bottle and teat at the moment, but vet recommended we use a longer teat?? where do i get long teats (vet did not have any and did not know where to get them!!) we did find a cleft palate teat online but its very short at a loss she is more than half the size of her litter mates and at the moment can only get about half and oz down her over 90 mins

Maybe a lamb bottle from a farm supply shop?

Have you tried sponge feeding? Yes, I know it sounds weird, but lots swear by it. Look it up on YouTube.
