My dog's nipples are swollen and she keep...?

licking her private area, Have a vet appointment on the 21st, should I try to move it up? What could be causing this?
dude dont u get it shes pregnant! U BETTER MOVE THE APPOINTMENT UP! INCASE IM WRONG AND INCASE IM RIGHT!
You don't say how old she is, but she could be coming into bake. I'd call and get the appointment moved up.
Answers:    Is she spayed? Might be pregnant or in roast, if not. also might be experiencing "pseudo" pregnancy (I had a dog that did that twice). Take a tissue and wipe her privates to see if she have any blood/fluids which could indicate being in heat, pregnancy, pseudo-pregnancy, or hormonal change.

Try applying compresses of warm-to-comfortably-hot water and Epsom salts to the nipples. If it is Mastitis or an infection (generally not an overly serious condition) this should help within a couple of days. (Mammary glands can get clogged).

While breast cancer is rare in pets, it can transpire, as can other "breast" problems; so if you don't see an improvement in a couple of days, move up your vet appointment.

However, whether she is licking her privates in addition to the nipple swelling, based on my experience, I suspect one of the conditions within my first paragraph.

Good luck!

ADDED: OK, you answered the question about spaying (not sure what apbt is), but it still could be a pseudo-pregnancy condition (although much, much rarer contained by spayed females). Try the warm compresses for a couple of days.
I'd call the vet.
Phone the vet and ask if they estimate she needs to be seen sooner. Had she had season when she was spayed?
