How can we relieve a clogged milk duct in a dog before getting antibiotics? My mom's dog had a litter of puppies and since they were 8 weeks, they have been sold gradually over a 2 week period. There were 8. The last two went two days ago and this morning she woke up with an enormous, rock hard boob. She was treated for this about a week after she had this litter(this is her 3rd litter in 4-5 years) and went on antibiotics. She cannot get in to see the vet until Moday, so what can we do you help her out until then? It is rock hard and very hot to the touch. Can we do the same thing with her as I do with myself?-warm compress, massage, etc. And no milk will come out when we try to "milk" her! ANything you know about this would be a great help!!
