Because if you were any kind of legitimate breeder you wouldn't be asking this question. I am sure you bred your bitch and like most people in the world breeding these dog's you had no other reason to breed other than to make money of some pups. If you actually have a vet than you should have the vet look at her.

Some dog's teats go back within a few months and some dog's don't it's called giving birth. Her teats may never fully shrink back to normal size. How many times have you bred her? I don't know if I want to even know the answer to this. Also how old is she? And how big was the litter? Also how soon did you wean her from the pups ?

The answer will vary depending on your answers to Sadie's questions above.
Her teets will probably not be the same size they were before.And if she doesn't get enough exercise they will never fully go back up.My dog had a litter almost 2 yrs ago now and the mothers teets still hang down lower than they should because she is very lazy and won't exercise.

it was the first time i bred her and i asked a lot about it before i did and it wasnt for the money far from it, my bitch is goin on 3 soon, she is 8months old in the pic i have up, my vet said it will take time for them to go back up but i thought id check it on a pitbull site as ireland dont have many pitbulls and vets are inclined to treat them as any kind of dog, a bit of information of ppl actually wit knowledge of the pitbulls is wat i need not a course of antib's from my vet that wouldnt no to much.

and she had 6 on her first litter

You need to exercise her and make sure she is getting proper nutrition and on the best quality feed that you can afford. Breeding a dog is a big responsibility and shouldn't be done unless there is a good reason to be breed to begin with. You have already done it so nothing can be done at this point. I would recommend you spay her and not breed her again. As it was already stated when you breed a dog it put's a huge strain on the bitches body. Some dog's bounce back and some dog's take longer. Either way pregnancy takes a toll on the dog's body and her teats may never look the same again. Factor's include age, number of times the dog has been bred, how soon the bitch was weaned from the pups, how active the bitch was prior to breeding her and how active she is in general.

well i looked up everything while i bred her and her pups came out fine i weened them off at the rite time (so i think from information i got) and i feed her gain complete dog nuts and would put an egg over it maybe once a wk, i have an interest in pitbulls and certainly wouldnt want anything happening to my one which was the main reason i looked all this up while i was breeding her.

What kind of food do you feed?I couldn't understand what you meant.
And I think it's safe to say that we all have a interest in pit bulls,but that doesn't mean that we should all breed them.If you want to get into breeding you need to go about it the right way.Find a mentor.It takes years and years of research ,not just jumping on in.Yeah anybody can breed.but don't you want to know exactly what you'e doing first?And you need to be breeding to better the breed.Not just because you have an interest in them.
Not trying to be mean or harsh.:)

Just continue doing lots and lots of research before breeding again.It's more than just sticking 2 dogs together.You need to know about genetics and everything.Are there shows over there you can compete your dogs in?If so those are a great place to meet people that have knowledge in the breed.

we have shows alright but not a such for pitbulls im not goin to be breedin her again anyway i didnt on plan on after she got the mastitis it was just to know if they were goin to ever go back up?? and is it true that pitbulls will loose there hair if ya feed them more than a certain percentage of protein because it happened wit mine at the start or is it just coincidental that it stopped??

Hmmm I'm not too sure about that.How much protein were you feeding her?I know that too much protien can cause problems in the joints and etc.. but IDK about hair loss.
If you start a new thread asking about it I'm sure you'll get alot more answers and help.:)

they lose hair after having puppys sometimes , it wouldnt have anything to do with the protein in the food. Was this after her pups were born that she had hairloss? its usually due to the imbalance of hormones afterwards and its a normal thing.

no high protein doesnt cause that , my dogs food has over 30% protein and never have any of them had bald patches of hair or thinnning of hair.

I wouldn't call 24% too high of protein.My dogs are not very active at all and they get around that much.And if I had a dog that was very active then I would up the protein some.
Oh and you're very welcome!

OKAY...

THESE DOGS NEED HIGH PROTIEN!! they are carnivores and the lb for lb the best muscle and the best dog.. Muscle needs protien... SO you need to feed 26% or higher!

Your dog went bald most likely do to stress and or stress induced Demo which in some scatterbred dogs arises and disapates as stress levels rise and fall sometimes not ever seen until drops a brood..

The tits on your dog are big because you probably left the pups on the mamma longer than is really needed.. WITH APBTS sometimes you have to remove the pups 4wks as they are fully teethed and destroying the mamma undercariage. .. Shes 3 and a house dog I take it? you can count on her having large tits for rest of her years probably around the size of your pinky from the last joint to the tip of your pinky right? I have seen some real draggy tits on over bred dogs and thats the most comon complaint about the dogs tits is if a dog has had several litters and the tips of nips drag the ground..

JFYI .. Breeding APBTs when your not prepared fiscally and mentally to keep every pup is a very bad idea and doesnt turn out like orginally intended.. BYB's are unethical unprepaired, misinformed; and need to remember we can never know to much, keep learning.. We all start green the key is to learn as much as possible; thanks for the inquiry and welcome aboard.. .
