Q. I think my dog has mistitas but I can't afford to take her to the vets can I get any treatment for her online

A. if you think your dog has mastitis it can sometimes be treated with cabbage leave, just put some cabbage leaves on the affected mammary glands and bandage it around her body (not too tight!). Mastitis manifests as swollen painful mammary glands, in some cases you'l see some milk or pus coming out. Bear in mind it might also be mammary tumor, these are usually more lumpy or ulcerated. If you are not sure I would advice you to get it checked by a vet.
