I know that I may come off as being really dumb, but we got our 3 year old basset on the promise that her swollen teats were NOT because she is pregnant. We just really loved her and wanted to take her home, and I'm still wondering if it's something to be worried about. She hasn't been fixed yet, and we are taking care of that very soon...unless she is pregnant. Do bitches teats stay enlarged permanently after having a litter? Or after going into heat? Is it possible that she has swollen teats and is not preggo? We'll be going to the vet, but I'm feeling stressed and would love to know if I could be a little more skeptical about her possibly giving birth in the mean time.
