Hi JACustomer, thanks for your question. It sounds like you're right, the risk of mastitis is high. When did she birth her puppies and when did they pass away? Do you have a picture of her mammaries that you can share? Are you seeing any purple, blue or oozing areas? Are you able to take her temperature rectally? She she feel warm to you?
