    Default Doggie nipples

    Clara had her first heat back in November, and I know she's not pregnant, but her nipples look elongated to me (and have since the heat). Will they ever go back to normal? Here's a pic. They used to be barely noticeable. Is this just part of a maturing girl? I have never had a female that wasn't spayed early on.

    I dont know, but I did not spay the ladies until after their 2nd heat. They have nipples like that. It does not seem to be a problem at any rate. Oh great. Now I am paranoid.

    That is normal after a heat cycle, they will stay like that.

    Thanks, folks! I thought they would shrink back down. Believe me when I say I watched get like a hawk outside during her heat and never saw a single stay anywhere around, but I was a little bit concerned that maybe something happened while the kids were in charge that they didn't tell me about. (They were not to let her outside at all while I was gone or busy.) Her personality is developing as well, so I was inspecting her body very closely and that was all I could find. She's 10 months old now and starting to pick fights with the other fur members in the household and she's snuggling (not on our laps, just leaning on us), which she never did either of before. I was pretty sure she was just being a teenager, but I started to question that when I saw that her nipples were still bigger.

    I remember being worried about this too with Emma. Right as she was going into her first heat at about 7/8 months old she had no nipples to speak of. As her heat started and progressed out they popped and they never went back in. I new then my little girl was growing up. Like @Sherry said, relax and breathe in now.
