I have a dachy/poo that's 7 and I just noticed this morning…

Customer Question
I have a dachy/poo...

I have a dachy/poo that's 7 and I just noticed this morning she has a nipple that is swollen, blackish grey color and not quite the size of a dime but not exactly round. There isn't any discharge but I'm just concerned because I just .ca e her a bath day before yesterday and it wasn't like while I was crying her off. Any suggestions?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. The noise must be worrying. I'll connect you to the Veterinarian. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the gray?

Well the only thing that I forgot to tell you that her actually nipple seems to be the same size as the others but it's the blackish/grey and swelling around it....i hope that makes sense???

Hello. Thanks for writing in. My name is***** and I would be happy to help you. I AM NOT SET UP TO MAKE PHONE CALLS, BUT I WOULD BE HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU HAVE ONLINE. THE WEBSITE SENDS THE REQUESTS; NOT MYSELF. In order to give an informative and concise answer, it may take a few minutes before I respond back to you, so don't be alarmed if you don't hear back immediately. If you have not responded back in 10 minutes, it may be a longer before I can get back to you. I do have a couple more questions, though, to see if I can better assess your situation.

Is she spayed? If so, how old was she when it happened?

Is this area bothering her?

Is it possible for you to take a picture of the affected area and post it or attach it to your next message?

It's on my Facebook page now if that helps....im sorry but I'm not very good with all this electronic stuff...lol
Cat Veterinarian: Dr. John, Texas Veterinarian replied 10 months ago

No problem. There are other people with your name on Facebook, though, so it is making it harder to find. If you can just copy and paste the web address, that would help out A LOT. For example, the web address for this page is
