Three days ago my German Shepherd was neutered, we were told that while he was at the vet he woke up he chewed opened his incision so they had to redo it and from there on our vet made sure we make sure he doesn’t do it again. The vet said he does not believe in cones but we still bought one just in case. Now threes day since his surgery it looks like he must have chewed open part of his stitches, it is not excessively bleeding just dripping every once and a while. We called the vet and explained everything and every detail and he says it is good it opened up because he wants it to drain... He is eating and drinking just fine and is acting normal. I just don’t think it sounds or looks right. Please help...what would you do??

I would go back to the vet.

And I would familiarize myself with the forum rules. We are not heartless but nobody here, without even seeing your dog, is able to give a more educated opinion than your vet. If you don't trust your vet, you need to find another vet and get another (professional) opnion.


Dog Health Questions
Caring for your dog's health and well-being aren't always that easy. While our members may have good advice, it is just advice. Please use this section as a resource to discuss "diagnosed" conditions and treatment options for your dog. *Important - All serious concerns with your dog's health and well-being should be handled by a Veterinarian, so please refrain from asking questions that are best suited for their office.

This is not a suggestion. It's a forum rule. Anyone who requests or offers medical advice prior to a vet visit is subject to disciplinary action.

I appreciate the reply, we have trusted our vet for years now with our cats and this is our first dog, so I do trust him it just looks very uncomfortable and I do not understand how it will heal.

If nothing else, send your vet the picture you posted here, to see what he thinks.
