    Default HELP: weird bumps after spaying

    Today my 8 month old chocolate lab baby just got her stiches removed after her spay surgury.
    She now has these very notacable lumps where every stich was (8 bumps along insision)..they kind of look like white heads or keloids.
    When i asked then vet nurse about it she said "just keep an eye on it" and didnt really answer my question.
    Im very unhappy with the way this vet treated us the whole experiance was horrible..needless to say i will be finding a new vet.. in the mean time anyone have any idea what these bumps are and will my babys belly go back to normal?

    Maggie had them it was where the fluid drained and over time they flattened out. I think it took a week or two.

    Bella had one largish bump where her stitches were. It went away after a couple of weeks though. You can still feel where the stitches were though on her tummy, it is a little bumpy now. But I think that is just the scar.

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.

    it's just some tissue irritation from the suture thread, it does go away as long as your dog has not torn the tissue by harrassing it. It's nothing to worry about at all, just dont go smothering too many creams or anything else like that onto it
