What can I do for mastitis in Boxers who have pups?


Answer by  patti (29325)

Take the dog to the veterinarian immediately to determine and treat the cause of the mastitis. Otherwise, her milk production may cease. In the meantime, monitor the puppies closely to make sure that they have not contracted any sort of infection.
