Hi all:
My mom (Wendy) wants to know if any other Pugs out there have had an inverted nipple? One of my human sisters found that I had a full looking nipple and showed my mom and now she is worried. It is where a nipple would be but does not hang down like my other nipples instead it is flate and a black hole. There is no puss or bleeding and it does not hurt when someone touches it. My mom never noticed it before when she rubs my tummy.

Any ideas or info would help...

Thanks Tia

I have an inverted nipple too. The vet said it is common and to not worry. Mine was sore from wearing a bad harness and the vet told my mom to put some neosporin on it if it ever opens up.

Hi, my name is Coach and I am a pug! I have an inverted nipple! My mom, Patty, took me to the vet and he said it was common....but always is a good thing to have it checked out! We just have to keep it clean and if it gets irritated or crusty then we put the antibiotic cream the vet gave me! It's all ok!
