|Moira had a hard lump 4 days after her spay. Oval, maybe half dollar size, under the incision. It pulled one stitch apart. I assumed it was a seroma - fluid filled whatever from being too active. I was half right. It was irritated and swollen muscles under the stitches from being too active. Moira had to go back in the collar - not because of the swelling, but to restrict her activity. The lump went away nicely. Wed - spay. Sunday - swelling. Monday - to vet. Friday - collar off. My mistake was not using the collar after her spay. She didn't bother her stitches, but because hers was so big, it did keep her quieter.
How long has it been since Lila Rae's surgery? Moira was totally good to go before her two weeks were up, but I still restricted her walks and tried to restrict her jumping. I have less control over that. For a while the area was a little ugly from the swelling and pulled stitch, but it is perfect now. She could wear a bikini if dogs did such things.
