I asked this question earlier today but for some reason it didn’t post so I’ll try again.
We had our Basset puppy spayed about three weeks ago and for the first couple of weeks her incision was healing nicely. About four days ago the incision became inflammed and there are several pea sized red lumps on the incision area. I talked to our vet today and he says she has probably had a reaction to the disolving stitches and will have to have them removed and staple stiches put in as well as going on antibiotics. Is there not something less invasive that can be done? Perhaps there is something topical I can use on the incision. Do you have any suggestions? Thanks. Lesley
