Thank you for all of this information.
Diarrhoea the day of the procedure is not unexpected and can be due to the anaesthetic. We thus advise a very bland diet (such as chicken and rice) and you could also give a probiotic paste such as Protexin Prokolin.
Similarly, a small vomit can be within the realms of normal.
Do keep an eye though, ensuring his gums are pink and wet and he should be much better tomorrow.
No need for a call!
I'm just looking at that photo now...
There is a small amount of skin eversion (whereby the skin puckers slightly out rather than being flush) where one suture is placed.
As it is just a very small incision, this would not be of concern to me and I would certainly not advise anything needs to be done.
This wound should heal quickly and with minimal scarring.
As with all wounds, it is important it is kept clean and that Biggles does not chew or lick at it.
The black bits are just dried blood and will go away in a few days.
Not neurotic at all, I completely understand your concern.
This window stays open for several more days so do feel welcome to update any further photos as it heals and to keep me updated.
Wishing your little man a speedy recovery and fingers crossed the biopsy is negative.
Very happy to help! Take care.
