• It looks like my dogs nipple is hanging out about a 1/4 inch

    Hi Becky,
    I recommend that you take her into see a veterinarian. A change in size or shape of the nipple can be caused by a few different things. Some of the causes are concerning so it is best to have her seen by a vet. Your vet can talk to you about the cause of her symptoms and any treatment that she needs after they have examined her.
