Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Welcome and thanks for asking your question. I am sorry the expert you requested is not available. My name is***** am a licensed veterinarian. I am sorry to learn Bella is not feeling well. First I need to ask you a few questions so that I can be well informed and give you the best advice. There may be a slight delay between your follow ups and my replies as I type out a thorough reply for you.
1- Any swelling or oozing in the incision?
2- Is she on any medications? If so, what are the names?
1- Is the bandage dry?
2- When are you suppose to take the bandage off?
1- Does she have an ecollar on?
Friend, if she is scratching her tummy it sounds like she is trying to take the bandage off. It seems like she may be uncomfortable because of the bandage. I would have her checked in the morning by family veterinarian to take the bandage off and evaluate the incision. Discuss with your vet about leaving her without any bandage and just place the ecollar to prevent her from licking the incision; she will be fine.
Please do not forget to rate my answer - I hope you found it to be excellent. If there’s more I can do, please use the reply tab and let me know. It’s my goal to provide you with excellent service." Thank you for your business and I hope to work with you again soon!
