    Hi,
    Just now I was tickling Bess's belly, and something I have never noticed before, her nipples were slightly bigger at the base. Now I know this happens when a dogs has milk in her teat, so -an i know its disgusting - I squeezed one of her teats and white stuff came out, not like milk, but almost gooey and grey. We mated her last year in June, but she had a phantom.
    Does anyone know what this could be?
    Thanks.

    Ooo ive no idea it seems an awful long time since her phantom for it to be anything left from that, but then again i have no idea on this sort of thing, maybe try it on breeding section, if you dont get a lot of replies. Bless her does she seem ok in herself?

    I believe that they can phantom without being mated. (I may be wrong though )
    Hope you work it out .

    they can have phantoms without being mated,
    i presume with you saying you had her mated last june that she has recently been in season again,
    if so then i would say that she is having another phantom, x

    A bitch doesnt need to have been mated to have a phantom! So sound like it could be that!
