    So recently i added a new bitch to the family. I have no past history on her so dont know if she was used for breeding or not.

    When she first came on the scene, the vets pondered over a pregnancy but quickly discarded. She was producing milk, and quite a fair bit. So perhaps had had puppies not long ago?
    She had a course of Galastop and they seemed happy that she had dried up.

    However, when it came to taking her in for her neuter a few weeks later, there was milk again. So they didnt spay her. And we started another course of Galastop.

    Took her in again today to be spayed, still milk! Not much and very watery, but still there. So again, no spay and sent home with more galastop.

    Has anyone ever experienced this?
    A bitch producing milk for what is now at least 2 months. I've only ever had one other bitch and she was spayed before her first season, so dont really have any experience of this.

    Hi there, just saw your thread and didnt want to read it and run off without replying. I dont have any experience of this nor have I heard about it before either, I hope you manage to get her spayed at some point, this should stop her producing milk all together. Put this thread up in Dog Chat you may have more replies okay x

    Mia was producing milk for several months after her 1st season due to a false pregnancy. She has 2 rounds of Galastop and it still didn't clear up entirely. In the end we (the vet and I) decided to just go ahead with the spay as she was at risk of coming into season again and would have been quite likely to have another false pregnancy!

    shes booked in to hopefully get done on the 23rd now. so with any luck she will have dried up completely by then. maybe she was having a false pregnancy, but she had no other symptoms of it as such.
