My dog was spayed last Tuesday and her incision looks a bit

Customer Question

Hi my dog was spayed last Tuesday and her incision looks a bit swollen today and maybe even like it is splitting open in one spot? Doesn't hurt her at all. She is running, playing and let's us touch the incision etc. it is not bleeding or anything. Do I need to take her in asap?

Hello, this is Dr. Jess. I am sorry to hear about your pup! Can you tell me if she has any discharge from the incision? Does it feel warm to the touch?

Do you have an e-collar for her (the lampshade/cone collar)?
