    Default Incision red and swollen after spay?

    This is Stella's spay incision. It has gotten red and swollen the past few days. Not hot, and no drainage. She was spayed on 1/9. Is that part of the normal healing process to swell like that?

    A week after June's spay, her incision was red and swollen too. Took her to the vet and they said it was just a small infection and they gave her Clavamox 2 times a day for a week. It was considerably better after a day or 2.

    Usually the stitches come out at about 2 weeks-or did they glue her 'cause I can't see stitches? It looks kinda' "bumpy" to me, and the darker red looks a little worrisome. I would have them take a look-or if your vet has email-email them a picture, and see what he says. Much better to be safe...

    Agreed, looks very bumpy and swollen, I'd go for a recheck.

    Agnes's incision didn't get red or swollen after her spay. I would have your vet check her out based on your pic! Hope all is well with your little girl!
