Dear Dr. Baum —

Chocolate lab momma dog has green nipples! She had babies, and was nursing them. The babies were given away. The mom’s nipples are a greenish color. What could this be? What could be done to help her? The original owner gave up trying to find her a home, and now Iā€™m taking care of her.

Dear Beddie —

The breasts may be engorged with milk. Apply warm compresses and gently milk. This will relieve the pressure.
