Default Dog with discolored teat

Hi, I noticed on my 11year old spayed female dachshund that one of her
nipples has become discolored. It is almost a black color and almost
looks like it has shriveled up some. Nothing else seems wrong with
her....no swelling or bumps or redness around the area. I forgot to
bring this up to the vet when I had my other dog in last week looking
at his bumps.

Is this something to worry about? Is this a common thing or should I
take her to get looked at?



thanks,
CTV

Just to add that she has never birthed before. Not sure if that makes
any difference or not. Also, after a second look the teat looks
visibly larger than the other ones but has grown away from the chest
area and looks like it could be easily snipped off by a pair of
scissors. It also looks flattened and not round like the other normal
looking ones. Hope this make sense.


thanks,
CTV

..........Don't know the cause. Wonder if it could be trauma of some sort.
Personally I'd want to make sure it wasn't mammary cancer and would have the
vet check it out.

How old is she? Has she been spayed. Any recent illnesses or medications?

I'd at least give the vet a call and ask. Most are willing to answer any
questions over the phone.

Good Lord. It's 10 degrees windchill out there. Apparently it has affected
my reading comprehension. Better wake up before I drive to work!

Apologies to the OP. Still, call the vet and ask.

We've been spoiled here (south of Buffalo). It was in the mid 60's last
week, then BAM! Welcome to Lake Effect. Standing at the kids' bus stop this
morning was so very rude. My eye balls were cold. And the dog - a rain/snow
hater - barely gets his business out before he's running back to the door
shaking the paws as he trots.
