will this work on my new female? when i got her she had just weened a litter and she is all dried up but she is still hanging.It's called "drawing them up". It is a relatively simple thing to do, although has to be done in a rather strict fashion.
You have to keep the dog away from water.
They are to drink twice a day. Let her drink until she picks her head up from the bowl then take it away.
Feed her as normal.
She also has to be exercised/walked, flirt pole, etc every day as well.
2-3 times a day rub her belly with Campho Phenique. All over the teats.
Keep this up until she is drawn up.
Thats all there is to it. Works VERY well.
There are some products in the store that I am sure work also.
There is no excuse to have a bitch hanging like you have described.
Ive never heard of spaying to get the teets to come up? Doesnt seem right is there any proof in this?Depends on how long they nursed from her. Some breeders pull the pups off around 5 weeks I believe. The nipples will never be the same and will still hang but with excercise and a good diet they will reduce in size. Spaying her will help as well because with each heat she has they will still be droopy. How long did the pups nurse and how long have they been weaned? When was her last litter and how many litters has she had?
Sorry, when I am at work typing on my little phone I don't really get into a whole lot of detail.....Proof? Other than what I have heard and read on research I have done. Ever since Bella had her first heat a month ago her nipples are bigger and more pronounced so I started researching if they will go back to size once she is spayed. Spaying doesn't always work but it can help because they stop producing estrogen so no more cycles. It also depends on how many litters the bitch may have had and if never bred then how many times she has come into heat. Basically from the general consensus spaying works for some bitches and not for others but again you have to take into consideration the number of times bred, pups being weaned off and how old the bitch is. I have read the more they come into heat the more the teets sag.......IDK, just my take on the whole topic but this is my first bitch and am still learning :roll:Ive never heard of spaying to get the teets to come up?
