  2. Spay Incision Opened After 7 Days?

    Dog Health
    My golden was spayed 8 days ago, (buried sutures) and the vet told us we could take off the e-collar after 7 days. On day 6 it looked like it was healing nicely, so I had no problem taking it off on day 7. However, she started licking excessively right away, so we put the cone back on. Now, it...

    Hello, My dog Lola got spayed about a month ago. Everything was healing fine, it looks almost all healed up. She also is super active and eating/drinking.

    Dog Health
    Hi. My pup just got neutered last Thursday, July 21st (so it has been 9 days). Today is the first day he has been without his e-collar. Is this how the incision site is supposed to look/is it okay? There were no external stitches, just surgical glue holding the incision together. This is my...

    Dog Training and Behavior
    My bloodhound just got neutered yesterday and his surgery spot looks like it's a little swollen, which I was told is normal, but he wants to lick the incision spot so I went out and bought him an ecollar to prevent him from licking while I'm away at work but he REFUSES to let me put it on him...

  9. Question about a surgery to remove a mass on my dog

    Dog Health
    Today I picked up my dog Mufasa from surgery. He had a mass on his side that they didn't know what it was, it was the size of a nickel and flesh colored. When I picked him up they had made a giant 5"-6" incision on him and stapled him up. He is a black German spitz about 3-4 years of age. We...
  10. Post neuter incision image - is it okay?

    Dog Health
    My 12 mo old Great Dane is 11 days post-neuter, and his incision still seems awfully puffy and pink to me. But he's the first dog I've ever had neutered, since all our previous dogs were rescues and already altered. He is eating, drinking, and playing normally - seems totally fine. But I'm...
  11. Is my dog's incision healing well or should I be concerned?

    Dog Health
    We had our pup neutered this past Saturday. He seems to be behaviorally sound (extra cuddly, even), however I'm concerned with the healing process of the incision itself. All bleeding and or leakage has been extremely minimal, but he has occasionally gotten around to licking the wound. The...
