In the Philippines, a bizarre dog with one eye, two enormous tongues, and no nose was born. Unfortunately, the dog only survived for one day. It was delivered alongside a newborn who appeared to be in good health on February 6 in the country’s Aklan area. It only had one eye and no nose, so it could only suckle from its mother. Amie de Martin, a local, said they brought the young dog, now known as “Cyclops,” to the vet and fed it puppy chow in the hopes that it would live.
Because of its breathing problems, it didn’t make it to the next day, passing away at around 10 p.m. The grieving pet owner was told by the vet that the puppy died because the mother dog ingested toxins while pregnant. “The veterinarian suggested Cyclops’ mother probably ate something nasty,” Amie said. Cyclops’ mother, though, is an s-puppy, thus it isn’t necessarily the case.
Cyclops couldn’t even get a taste of her milk. We had to feed him with a dropper and powdered milk. Amie decided against burying the dead dog in the garden and instead preserved its remains in a glass box. It was speculated that the puppy suffered from Cyclopia, a rare ss that affects mammals and other animals. Any number of factors, including faulty genes and environmental toxins, can contribute to the disorder.
