Swollen nipple on spayed female?
I called my vet earlier and they can't fit us in for an appointment until Monday, but I wanted to see if anyone else has experienced this before. My German shepherd is a 5 year old, spayed female. Her nipples are hardly ever visible and today I saw her chewing on her chest and one nipple was swollen and irritated. (I attached a picture -hopefully it went through). I keep looking online and found everything from staph infection to cancer. Have anyone of you experienced anything similar with your dogs?
Also, this may be important... My family and I were out of town last week and boarded her at a local kennel that was highly recommended to us. She seemed great when I picked her up on Monday and she did not have this Monday when I brought her home. I'm not sure if it could be related to her being boarded though, so I thought this may be worth mentioning.
Thank you in advance for any information or personal experiences you all share with me.
