Hi,
Does the whitish liquid come out of her nipples? Do you feel that her belly seems fuller?

Customer reply replied 7 years ago
yes the liqiud is coming out of her nipples...and no her belly is still skinny..only seems swollen on some of her nipples
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Bruce, Veterinarian replied 7 years ago
Ok. The discharge could be milk. The fact that her mammary glands are getting fuller and discharging some milk out of the nipples could be an indication of pregnancy or a false pregnancy. If she's not filling out, then a pregnancy wouldn't be the most likely. False pregnancy is where the body acts like it is pregnant - sometimes filling out, milk production, etc., but they aren't really pregnant. Here is a good link on this.

At this point, your vet will closely exam her prior to the surgery and tell you what they think.
