Hyperestrogenism experience by - Kathy

I have noticed that my 6 year old female peke has been having leaking or discharge from her nipples - it appears to be milky in color and consistency. I know she is not pregnant - I will be contacting my vet with regard to this issue and I will keep you updated if and when I find an answer. I may just have to get her spayed. I hope that that is all there is to it.
