|Bella was spayed 4 weeks ago and had some complications. After going back to the vet and getting put on antibiotics everything looked much better. Her staples were removed 2 weeks ago and her incision site looked great, no lumps and it was nice and flat. Her insicion site is longer than normal due to complications she had during her procedure but still it was nice and flat and from the outside looked complete healed.
This morning she rolled over on her back and I noticed 3 lumps under the incision site. They are not red at all, she doesn't seem bothered by them and her incision scar is white and doesn't look irritated at all. They didn't feel hard and don't look shiny, they just look like her normal skin with lumps underneath. She has been her normal active self since her staples have been removed, she is eating and drinking normal. She is pooping and peeing normal.
Has anyone else had this happen in their female dog weeks or months after a spay? My biggest fear is that she will have to go through surgery again. If it's an incisional hernia do those have to be treated by surgery or do they go away over time if you keep the dogs activity level down?
