ok so probably an odd question but my cinnamon will be 2 in December by approximation and recently her nipples have become large and very dark in color a definite change. Does anyone know if this just happens with age or if I should be concerned. Loadingimage.jpg a pic

It could be connected to the growth of ovarian cysts and hormonal changes in her body. If in doubt, please see a piggy savvy vet; he will also check for the presence of any mammary tumors, which is much less likely.

Thank you! I so hope it's not that, she does have a pear shape to her but she always has and otherwise is behaving normally
