Hello my name is***** but you can call me Dr. H, and I am a licensed veterinarian. I understand that your pet Ally has a swollen nipple and you are wondering what are some possible causes. To answer that I need a bit more information concerning Ally.

What age was Ally when she got spayed?

Is the swollen area discolored or reddened?

A picture of the area would be most helpful for more specific recommendations for treatment. There is an icon just above the chat entry box that you can use to upload a photo saved on your computer. You can easily take a picture with your phone and email it yourself and then download it to your computer so that it can be shared. Let me know if you have any trouble with this
