Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.

1) How old is Abbie?
2) When was her last heat cycle?

The most prudent approach for her situation would be an examination. Mastitis, although more common in nursing mothers, is a risk as well as tumors within the mammary chain on each side. Her risk for this is elevated because she is an intact female and she is also middle aged for a weim.
