I was scratching my dogs stomach the other night, and I noticed her nipples are still a little swollen sincer she was in heat ( which happened over Christmas) ..
So i slightly squeezed one of them, and this yellowish sticky discharge came out. It didnt "pop" so to speak, but it reminded me of like a bug bite kinda discharge. She's just over a year old (she was born in October) and this was her first heat. Her nipples where HUGE and they arent as big now, but theyre still swollen at the base. Not all of them are though. Just the four on her lower stomach. and the higher they go up her ribcage the bigger they are. I don't think shes pregnant, but if she was, shes not showing anything. I live three hours away from the nearest vet, so I was wondering if anyone can let me know if they have an idea of whats going on before I rush out and get her checked.
So what Im basically asking is ... is it normal to have this happen to a young dog after her first heat?
I heard somewhere that it could be a ghost pregnancy and this is pre-milk, but I just wanna know if you have any serious thoughts on this ..
