Thankyou....Just wondered why if when we expressed the two lowest teats(the other's were not swollen) the liquid would be clear and odorless-not milky at all. Tara seems to be back to her old young self... we will go ahead with a vet appointment tomorrow
We took Tara to the vet-Monday /AM..She thought definately was a pseudo pregnancy and was not worried about infection. She thought the fluid in teats though clearish on Saturday when we expressed it would be starting to go more milky She explained this can be quite common in females and is triggered by perhaps being in contact with puppies or even human babies. So happens just after her first heat my nephew visited from Canada with his twin baby daughters. The timing fit as this was the end of May.The vet prescribed "Galastop Oral"(cabergoline) 1.6 ml with food for five days. Her first dose was Monday PM- she vomited over night. We read the info sheet that said"vomiting or anorexia may occur after the first one or two doses in a small proportion of cases...no need to discontinue treatment unless persists after second dose". Gave second doseTuesday AM (she was eating fine) by that afternoon she puked again. Fed her dinner later on (no dose) ate ok but puked again five hours later that night..Needless to say we did not give her a third dose-called the vet who said she just must not tolerate the medicine-discontinue all together and the pseudo-preg will resolve shortly anyway.
So it seems- as there is no more swelling and she is up to her old active antics.28£ for your advice +40£ from local vet-we are reassured and will know what we might expect next time. Regardless of all the worry and mess- she's worth every penny..and I'm glad to know there is help available..even on line.
Thank you for your attention!
