Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Welcome! Thanks for asking your question. My name is***** am a licensed veterinarian and I will be assisting you today. First I need to ask you a few questions so that I can be well informed and give you the best advice.
1- Where does she have the stitches and why?
2- The wound was seen by vet today, correct?
1- Is she currently on any medications?
2- All of the incisions are oozing?
Friend, in response to your question I would not put neosporin on the incision, the ointment could weaken the sutures. In addition, she is currently on Cephalexin which is an antibiotic, so she will be okay as far as infections. I would recommend you keep her quiet, minimize movement. You see moving too much will cause the incisions to build fluid. Apply warm compresses as family veterinarian recommended. If you notice that the oozing increases or any swelling have her re-checked by family veterinarian.
My goal is to provide you with excellent service - I hope I've provided the information you were seeking, if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions. Kindly rate me when you are done.
