    Dog Spay

    Hi All! Now that Aggie is almost 5 months old we got her spayed today. I'm a little worried about the incision. My vet used the disolvable sutures and glue I do believe, and seeing as my last dog was spayed 15 years ago she had the old school sutures so I'm not sure if this is normal or not. This is the best pic I could get with my phone, I didn't want to keep making her show me her belly. It looks like she may have opened it.


    She isn't bleeding, and this is only a few hours post op. She has her cone on now (we had a long ride home due to traffic and all and she didn't have cone on then so worried she might have opened it then) and is sound asleep. She hasn't wanted to eat but I don't blame her lol. My question is does this look abnormal? Should I go see my vet?

    Hard to tell from the pics, but it doesn't appear as if it is bleeding, so I'd assume it's not open. Sometimes the glue can make things a bit crusty.

    Looks fine to me, there doesn't seem to be any fluid or redness around it, so all good

    Looks fine to me...glue seems to be a growing trend...I think dogs are less likely to chew at it and irritate it, so the vets like to use it. Plus you won't need to take an extra trip to the vet to have them taken out.
    If your dreams turn to dust...vacuum, move on, dream again!

    Thanks guys! A friend of mine is studying to be a vet so she came over last night and took a look and said the glue was a little crusty but had started to separate so she put some steri strips on it and said to keep those on for the next 24 hrs or so. Checked it today and it looks good. A little clear liquid (not much at all) and I know as long as it's clear we are good. She has the e-collar on anytime I'm not watching her, and slept with a tshirt on last night. Today she is going to stay with a friend since I have to work and I gave her the prescribed pain meds so I anticipate her sleeping lots lol. My friend said that the concern with the top layer separating is infection since all the heavy stitching is underneath so just have to keep an eye on it!
