Enlarged Nipples/teats

Postby gjw » Sun Dec 08, 2013 4:37 pm

Hi all, my 12 month old GSP had her first heat cycle that ended a month ago. Her nipples/teats are still enlarged. I'm just curious to know if they will reduce in size or is this something to be concerned about.

Thanks so much!

She might go through a false pregnancy? Pretty common.

Thanks! Interesting, so do you know if they will reduce in size? I suppose the length of the false pregnancy will vary from dog to dog, correct?

Thanks again!

Yea, some carry it clear through till delivery time. Build a nest to get ready for the pups, then nothing happens. My last dog did like yours.

My beloved lil "CHILI BEAN", my GSP, lived to be 13 years old, SHE would go into a false pregancy EVERY TIME, meaning damn near every 6 months. YEP, with all the effects, swollen nipples and teats, she'd even produce some milk. She'd even build a nest under the bed. Worried me to death...everytime...but it all seemed to work out, everytime.

Thanks so much everyone! Sure does put my mind at ease.

I"d like to know however, will her nipples ever reduce in size?

Thanks again!

Everything will get back to normal in a month or so. Maybe sooner.
