Thanks for replying!
I think in some cases it's heredity. One of my dogs had two enlarged nipples--the one on the left was the second from the top and the one on the right was the third from the top. A litter brother had the same two enlarged nipples. The litter brothers son also had the same two enlarged nipples. Recently I saw a grandson of the litter brothers--guess what--same two enlarged nipples.
When my dog was 9 the enlarged nipple on the left side turned into a mess--I was afraid that it might have become cancerous--we removed it with big margins and biopsied it--it wasn't cancerous--the surgeons best guess was that it had become irritated and what was going on was an infection.
