    bitch supressing milk

    My young Spanieldor is expressing milk after her 1st season. Now I know that you could get tablets to stop this, but can they still be sought today or is it s trip to see dick turpin? ive tried a few places but I cant lay my hands on them.

    Hi Nutty,
    Even Dick Turpin has running costs or should I say in this instance galloping costs.
    Suggested solutions.
    1: is her booster vaccination due or near in which case examination is included in this so plus cost of tablets only.
    2: consultation plus cost of tablets.
    3: consultation plus free prescription and buy tablets over the internet.
    Unfortunately the hormones used are POM-V (Sesoral)
    I would be more concerned about long term. Is she going to do this after each season ? May be a slight hormone imbalance which could be corrected by a pregnancy after the age of two.But monitor her carefully as in the long term could develop pyometra (pus in the womb) if not mated.
    Just another cost of stalking.

    My 6 yr old spaniel decided to "adopt" the wifes new kittens, to the extent of lactating, it cost me 50 at the vets for some jollop to stop it.

    she has now come into season, so am sorting a stud dog.

    this means she will miss the first month of the season but it will be worthwhile.
