I don't want to embaress my sweet dog, Jasmine, but I have a question about her nipples. Last night I noticed her nipples are black, hard and crusty, and shriveled up. Does anyone know what this means???? It's the bottom 4-6 nipples, but the top two are pink and normal.

She is only 3 1/2 years old, very active, healthy, and puppy-like (just in case anyone inquires).

Please advise if anyone knows, thanks!

Hope Jasmine is doing okay.

How is your dog?

When I have time I will try and wash them and see if the hard, black crusty darkness comes off.

If she isn`t uncomfortable with them, I wouldn`t be concerned

I always use Drs Foster and Smith live chat if I have a question.

Being so rural & a Vet not always handy, I need the extra coverage from them.

Let us know what you find out!

I've seen this quite a bit with dogs who are lactating. And I've seen my own nipples get sore & cracked when I was nursing my daughter. But Jasmine is not with puppies is she?

When I had a gelding (horse) his sheath used to get crusty/black too (sheath is foreskin)..

Perhaps Jasmine just simply isn't able to reach her back nipples to clean them like she is the front two.

Any pictures of Jasmine?

Hi Artlovesdawn & Lovely ~

Thanks for your replies.

Dawn, I followed your link and those ailments describe swollen tumour-type growths with discharge. Jasmine's are small, no lumps, and no discharge.

We maybe think they are just dirty, or ????? They are not as hard/crusty as we thought, they're actually kind of soft now. My mother used some antibiotic ointment on them.

Lovely ~ Jasmine has her very own webpage at Dogster. She even has 2 videos there. You can view her page here: Click Here

Jasmine has rabbit legs. They look soft, silky-white and swift! I can see her as a jumper!..and a barky girl! Is she vocal? LOL

I'm looking at Jasmine swimming in the pool and thinking her energy is that of a child learning to swim, never venturing off too far from the stairs. It's great you have a website for her.

Did you clear up the nipple issue>

Also, Neph, are you the blonde?
Where in Ca are you?

rabbit legs!

Yes, she definitely *jumps* anytime she wants FOOD and can't wait. Also when she catches her ball (when I throw it, when we play fetch) she does some acrobatic jumps.

OMGosh she is TOTALLY like a little kid! She does swim to the deep end of the pool, too, but just loves to push her ball out on the steps, swim out & get it, over and over again.

I'm not really worried about the nipple issue anymore.

Yes, I am blonde, & I live in Marin County. (north of San Fran.) Where do you live?

I just upgraded Jasmine's webpage at Dogster to Dogster Plus and I made her a Christmas webpage. So if you'd like to visit, please scroll up a few posts for the link!
