I just adopted my english bulldog and apparently her old owner used to breed her ALOT!!!!! Her nipples hang down pretty far when she stands up and walks is there anything that can be done to help her?? She has a vet appt on wed but I wanted to see if I could get any advise on here. Thanks
Yes, depends on how long since her last litter. Also some females just sag. Alot has to do with properly weaning the pups whether the dam shrinks back down well.
I do have one Beagle, who has sagged ever since she had a false pregnancy. She got huge with the 'false pregnancy', was never even bred at that point, but sagged ever since, ending her show career. No way to properly drying her up when there was no milk or nursing puppies to dry her from.
And I have girls who have had multiple litters and to look at them you could never tell.
English Bulldogs are bad for having saggy ninnies. I've seen them have quite saggy ones that have never even been bred but have had a few heat cycles. Just because an EB has saggy ninnies, doesn't mean she's been bred ALOT. It's just an EB characteristic that happens sometimes. Of course having a litter just makes them sag all the more. If someone has an issue with saggy skin, I don't suggest them getting a female EB.
Please understand. We are NOT laughing at you. We know that you came here to find an answer to your question and I made light of it. If you are offended or put off, I apologize. It's just that what you describe is a function of nature. You stated that the dog you adopted was bred extensively and as a result has ... well, the sags. It is my experience that this is just a result of the fact that she has bred extensively. It is not likely, in my experience, to self correct. If you are sufficiently bothered by this there may be a surgical remedy but I assure you, your dog is not bothered by it. Unless she is tripping over them! Sorry, there I go again!
Sarah, she's fine. Really!
