If a puppy still has an open fontanelle (not sure how large it is) at the age of seven months-what are the chances it could still close? From what I have read so far it seems if it hasn't closed by the age of 6 to 7 months it probably isn't going to close. Also it seems that these puppies growth pattern is slower and they stay smaller (I've read about puppies having growth spurts once it has closed). So does an open fontanelle affect their mental status as well as physical?
