It sounds to me like your nervous energy may be feeding him as well. Just by reading what you typed, it sounds to me like you are on edge around him and don't trust him. Possibly even afraid. If he senses that energy, you will feed into him. If you are giving off tense/nervous vibes, he may feel lik...

I guess I interpreted your taking care of her as taking care of her AND her pet too :dunno: She obviously needs it - as well as the dog. We are giving her a place to stay so she could leave her house. She is getting a divorce and her living conditions weren't very good. We are housing her. Not baby...

would the owner be ok with you getting her spayed, if you presented them with a list of reasons? I am sure she would. She isn't against getting her spayed. She knows she needs too and is intending on it. She is just one of those people who pushes things like getting her dog spayed off, for more imp...

She said, the vet said, they have to wait 30 days after her cycle before they can spay her. It has only been 2 weeks. Not sure if that is helpful or not , haha.

Just a random part of the equation that popped in my head.

I would if she was my dog. But she isn't and I certainly don't feel it is my responsibility to spay someone elses dog who is completely capable, but simply irresponsible. If I could find a free spay I would probably do it.

When a bitch is in heat and after.

We are helping a friend through a divorce and she is staying with me for a few months. She has a 1 year old lab. Her lab isn't spayed (i know, I already laid into her about it). My questions is. She recently was in heat and is done. However, her nipple area looks a little saggy, like they have milk ...

I have been giving her 50mg of Benadryl, twice a day, for 3 days.

She still has them, but they look like they might be going away.
