pug breast is swollen
I have a 9 mo. old female pug that just finished her first heat a week ago.  I noticed yesterday that both of her top nipples are swollen and have a soft mast under them.  They are moveable, but it also looks like her top nipples are sunken in as well.  Is this normal??

She may have undergone a pseudopsyesis (false pregnancy).  The mammary glands do swell slightly during a heat cycle but usually go down uneventfully afterwards.  Since they are slightly swollen and hard she may have a touch of mastitis (breast infection), especially if they are painful and hot to the touch.  If she is acting sick in other ways she should be evaluated by your veterinarian.  Mastitis may require antibiotics and anti-inflammatories, and hot compresses.
