Complications after nueter

My dog was just neutered a week ago. He had a testicle that hadn't dropped so he has an incision in his stomach. As soon as I brought him home I noticed his stomach looked swollen like a baseball inside. This gradually got MUCH larger over days. I could even feel a pocket of fluid all the way in his chest. Took him to the vet Saturday and assumed it was a seroma. Last night he started dripping a blood tinged fluid that seemed to be coming from the incision but we discovered this morning its actually 2 holes in his stomach beside the incision. They are about the size of a pencil eraser. Vet said he thinks it's an allergy to sutures. Anyone else ever experience anything like this with their dog? Can that cause holes to suddenly develop in a dogs skin?

not sure I understand what you mean by 'holes in the stomach'... photo? Seromas can lead to discharge if there is enough pressure built up and you get a draining tract... perhaps that's what's going on? Fluid just needs to be drained and a different kind of suture material placed and the old stuff removed.

Gah! Was not expecting a picture when I opened this thread. I would definitely insist the vet assess that. I would think open wounds would be more susceptible to infection.

I've removed the photo because it's very graphic and serves no purpose as no one here can diagnose your dog. Please see a vet.

(If someone would like to see the photo, they can PM you)
