Our female Kelpie was desexed last friday. We noticed a small lump next to her sutures.
We called the vet & they said it is most likely to be a Seroma from being active after her operation. We have had her refined to a backyard but I think she has still be running around to much. The vet didn't seem to concerned about it at this stage, but to just keep an eye on it and try & prevent her from running around etc
The Seroma doesn't seem to be bothering her at all & I have to say we have been lucky with her sutures as she is not worried by them the slightest. We check them often and doesn't look like they haven't been touched or licked
We have now had to tie her up during the day when we are at work, near her kennel, hoping this will help it. She is due to get her sutures removed next Wednesday.
My question is has anyone else had this with there dog? Can the Seroma go away on its owned or will we need to get it drained?
What have you done with your dog to keep it limited to its 'hypo activity'?
