So when we got Star she had stitches from her spaying. The wound was already almost entirely healed at that time.
We've asked our vet to look at them and she said they were the disolvable kind that will just fall out. She looked again two weeks later when we went back for her last puppy shot, same thing.
It's now been over two months since her spaying surgery according to Star's records. They seem to bother her off and on, more on than off lately, and it's getting kind of swollen and pink from all her picking at them (we try to stop her but can't while she's crated).
How long are dissolvable stitches normally in? Am I overreacting to being surprised they're still here as intact as ever two months later? Should I take her to the vet if she keeps picking at them?
