A. It would be best to try and find a veterinarian that is somewhat closer to you as a prescription cannot be provided without an examination of your dog to determine what the problem is. You can try to help your dog feel more comfortable by limiting nursing to unaffected nipples or supplement feeding the puppies to give mom a rest. Using a warm wet washcloth to remove any crusting or debris may also help, however finding a vet as close to you as possible is best.
