Customer Question

what medication can I give my dog to stop her from lactating after a psuedo pregnancy?

Unfortunately, the only thing that will stop lactation under any circumstances is time. As long as there is no demand on the mammary glands to continue producing, they will dry up. This is all determined by a negative feedback system. This means that as pressure builds up in the mammaries, it will send a signal through the nerves to stop producing milk. Time will take care of the problem.

I hope this is helpful.
