Dog's Inflamed Nipple
« on: 25-January-2011 03:06:36 »
Original Post:


Hi,

One of my dog's nipples seems to be inflamed. Will it subside on its own, or should I bring her to see a vet?
Would aloe vera help sooth the irritation temporarily?

Answer:


Hi Clay,

There are many causes of inflammation of teats/nipples of your dog.  It might be due to infection, hormonal changes, trauma or tumor.  These are actually interlinked with each other.  Trauma, which is the most frequent cause, can  lead to infection which surely cause inflammation.  Moreover, these can only be resolved by means of medical intervention of either antibiotic therapy and even surgical drainage if pus is present.  

Hormonal changes such as dog going towards sexual maturity can also cause mild inflammation which otherwise a normal physiological development of the mammary glands. These are actually being developed by a hormone estrogen necessary for reproductive organ maturity  including the breast.

Further, tumor which can be confused with inflammation need a thorough medical examination.  These need biopsy or  medical diagnoses for its definite  treatment.  It is imperative to assess carefully the real cause of the case and thus highly suggested to bring to your veterinarian for further observations.

Aloe vera may help on soothing irritated skin or teats.  If the inflammation doesn't subside within 48-72 hours, we highly recommend to see a veterinarian for appropriate diagnoses.
