My dog had about 8 puppies a couple of months ago and her teets are still there? How long should it take for them to "disappear/go away" Also, it looks like she has broken out with some kind of skin rash. Any ideas on any kind of cream to put on her? I have NO idea where it could have possibly come from.

You might want to seek the advice of a vet for the rash. Best not to play around with things you're unsure about.

Conditioning the dog with exercise usually helps to "tuck up" the belly a bit.

However, since it doesn't sound like you're breeding reputably or working with a breeding mentor, I highly suggest you have this dog spayed.

Sounds good. Breeding is hard on a dog, and if you're not breeding for any particular reason (work, show, performance) it is not worth bringing more puppies into a world that is already overrun with them. :)

While exercise does help to tighten the abdominal muscles, often for bitches that have had a litter thier teats never return back to the way they were before.

And for the rash you'll have to have her examined by a vet. Most likely they will want to do a skin scrape to rule out or determine the cause of the rash. Chances are they will also prescribe antibiotics and possibly a topical ointment.

lots of good exercise should tone those teats up good (preferable b/4 being spayed, i've been told, the hormone change from spaying can interfere w/ the toning up) i have yet to have the bitch whose teats didn't go back to normal after a litter w/ proper exercise.....
