Veterinary questions? Ask a Vet for Answers ASAP
Welcome! Thanks for asking your question. My name is***** am a licensed veterinarian and I will be assisting you today. First I need to ask you a few questions so that I can be well informed and give you the best advice.
1- Can you post a picture on this thread of the swelling?
I am having a bit of trouble seeing the swelling, is it in the bottom toward the right of the incision?
Thank you for the picture.
I see it, it is exactly where I mentioned above. Please give me a few minutes to type your answer.
Friend, below the skin there are 2 more layers of absorbable sutures. The swelling you are seeing is common and this is just the tissue slightly swollen probably from the sutures; it does not appear to be herniated. The incision looks perfect, I would not be worried. It looks fine.
My goal is to provide you with excellent service - I hope I've provided the information you were seeking, if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions. Kindly rate me when you are done.
It is not likely for complications to occur 1 week post surgery.
She can not pull the internal sutures without first opening the skin sutures. I would not worry about that.
There is nothing abnormal in the picture besides the minor swelling which is nothing to worry about. As far as what they will see I can not comment on what another person will see.
