My dog was spayed about 5 months ago, she healed quickly but over the mon't there have been a growth under the scar, which has been checked by the vet a couple of months ago and deemed not to be anything serious.
This morning it looks like in the photo below, dog is herself and jumping around like a squirrel, as she always do. I am trying to find the vet but no luck yet.
If there is any vet around, could you please let me know if I should panic and start ringing other practices for an urgent appointment?
Sorry pressed too soon! -Or maybe she has been nibbling the area? It does look like infection brewing, so it probably is worth seeing a vet, although whether you need to be seen today, or it can wait until tomorrow morning I can't say.
Thank you for your suggestions. Managed to contact the duty vet on Friday, who as SirVix said, thought there were the stitches coming to the surface. He also thought the lump was going to burst on its own and to disenfrct it when it happened.
It finally happened today, so the lump is slowly going down but still pretty red. So I guess I will need to keep it clean until it heals. (Otherwise back to the vet for antibiotics as soon as they open again)
