Welcome to JustAnswer.com! My name is***** and I have been a licensed veterinarian for 10 years. I would be happy to answer your question. I am worried that she has mastitis that is causing her pain, and that is why she is not letting the pups nurse as often. I would get her to the vet for an exam and temperature check. The vet may put her on some antibiotics that are safe for the pups and possibly pain medication. They will probably also recommend applying a warm compress to her teats to draw the infection to the surface.

Is that something normal that happens? She is prone to skin yeast infections. Does that have something to do with it? Is there anything I can do for here tonight. I did check her temp and it is normal...
