Re: How many nipples does a dog have.


Bodhi has odd nipples

Well.. I think she has the right amount, but 2 on one side are right up next to each other.. So she has a big gap before her next one...!

Did anyone watch the vet program that was on a couple of months ago? There was a springer that had a skin eating disease and had a graft off it's belly onto it's leg?

The vet was saying he had done it before, and a bitch had a row of nipples up her leg (not suprising) but!! NURSED a litter of puppies off her leg??!!

Do you think he was winding us up? He sounded deadly serious..

Not counted Hollie's, but they aren't in even rows.

Hang on, I'll go count them.....................................

................she has 6. 4 are relatively close together, the other 2 are further away and slightly further apart.

Re: How many nipples does a dog have.


Hi Lillybet yes it is not uncommon for bitches to have an odd number of nipples though it is worth checking carefully to be sure one is not a growth.

(PS they are called teats in bitches, the most common number is 10 in large breeds and and 8 in smaller breeds but the number can vary between 8 and 12 )

OK, I can't count.

I was rubbing Hollie's tummy just now and found 2 more, so she has 8!

Re: How many nipples does a dog have.


The seem to have any number you can think of, and they seem to have them in odd places too.

Well not any number but it seems anything from 6 to 16 and not always even either.
