It is not unusual to see a little breast enlargement after spaying. Many dogs will experience symptoms similar to a false pregnancy since the hormones shift after spaying. Breast enlargement is relatively normal after spaying. Remember to keep her as inactive as possible for the first week after spaying to help ensure the suture site heals properly.
