    Im thinking the knot was a bit swollen still, but to tell the truth, I haven't come across it.

    Thanks for your opinion Myf I'll continue keeping an eye on it. She lets me touch it and doesn't mind, so hopefully it's all good

    Myf, I have a question for you, seeing as how you're a vet nurse. My girl got desexed before Christmas. At the top of her incision a lump formed. It was a bit bigger than a pea (probably a pea and a half?!) and we watched it and watched it and it didn't seem to cause her pain so we waited until we got her external stitches removed until I asked the nurses, and they told me it's the internal stitches and was nothing to worry about but to keep an eye on it. It never seemed to hurt her and it's getting smaller. Does this happen often? And what is it exactly?
    could be forming scar tissue maybe???

    Maybe. I don't know... It's definately getting smaller though, which is a good sign.

    the process sounds very painful indeed. =(
    wish there was a simpler method...although...its is very simple hey?....

    my dog isn't desexed, i know it sounds bad to a lot of people but i haven't seen the need, and every male we've ever desexed has had a terrible temperament change.

    hes never made puppies, and doesnt seem desperate, never trys to run off to females.

    ill get him check reguarly as he gets older for cancer and such and may desex him but not yet. xxx

    I don't think it sounds bad at all. I think that your stance is very responsible actually.

    I have had mainly female dogs and the last 4 have been rescues, so they have been "fixed" before i got them. My question is what do people think about the school of thought that bitches need to have a litter before you "fix" them?

    To me that's as rubbish as saying a woman needs to have sex because she got her period. Yes, a heat means she is capable, doesn't mean she needs to. Anyone who thinks it's 'better' for a bitch to have a litter before she gets desexed is IMO an ignorant douche.

    My thoughts: "I wish someone had taken out the moron who started this stupid old wives tale BEFORE it started"

    It is ridiculous in this day and age and along the same lines of "You aren't truly a woman until you've had a child"

    Troopa will be a bit groggy and sore the first day or so. Sumo had his snip snip a couple of months ago. He had external stitches which needed removal after 10 days. All you really need to do is try and minimise licking of the area. You can get a spray called "woundguard" from the vet...it tastes REALLY bitter and you spray it on the wound...it stops them from licking as they hate the taste.

    Don't worry...he'll be a ok
