This is how it looks after 10 days after being spayed. I'm not an expert and the vet said the stitches are dissolvable, so i was wondering if someone who has spayed their dog before can tell me if her incision is looking normal after this period of time

Eek.

.

If she was mine, i'd take her in for a re-check. :( I don't like that angry red at both ends.

Has there been any discharge / weeping / crusting? -- If so, what color was it?
Straw-blond, thin, clear fluid is normal for the 1st day or 2; that's SERUM, the liquid fraction of blood, which should stop within 48-hrs.

But no pink, let alone red fluid, or any other colors [creamy-yellow pus, green mucus, or anything else] is "normal" at any time.

Has she been wearing a CONE collar for the past 10-days, to keep her tongue off it?
Or a onesie, zipped-up so that she can't mess with it?


I'd take her to the vet ASAP.
