Re: female dog with lumps under her nipples

Your bitch could be having a mild phantom, mine did and she had hard lumps under nipples like you are describing. Her's did bother her and she scratched them.
One thing you must be aware of is Mastitis, if the area feels hot to the touch
or really hard, that could be mastitis.



Hope she's ok in herself

Here is a link to my thread at the time
False Pregnancy

Re: female dog with lumps under her nipples

Just to add Willow didnt have any other symptoms of phantom pregnancy, no nesting, mothering or mood changes either.
I did give her evening primrose oil to try and help with the hormone changes.

Re: female dog with lumps under her nipples

i don't think it is mastitis, but i have been told the dog would have to have had a open wound around the nipple for the infection to have started, or is that not true?
but anyway her nipples are not hot to touch, and i was wondering could it have anything to do with the other bitch she see's alot because my dog acording to the vet mine was holding off from her season (my dog was starting and stopping swelling up and down for 2 months before she came in) because the other bitch was due in but never came in?
