I have a female Akita with mastitis engorged tears. Red. Won't let the pups eat. Almost 4 weeks old. Just did great first feeding of solids. Is there anything I can do to help mom until I can get her to vet Monday?

JA: What is the dog's name?

JA: Pardon me?
Customer: Greek god Phenix
JA: I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and connect you two.

There are varying degrees of severity with mastitis. It is always uncomfortable, but it can also be very serious if the tissue begins to die. Could you post a picture of her abdomen/mammary glands for me?
