Default What is this on her incision line?

Arexa got spayed 7 weeks ago and there was a tiny almost clear bump on her incision line. Now it got bigger and got red, the vet said nothing is wrong and her incision is fine. She did have a sutures reaction after spay and I can still feel the sutures next to her incision. I am worried now, has anyone seen this before? We saw the vet 2 days ago..

It's probably from the sutures, a mild reaction. Just watch and make sure it doesn't get bigger.

Zefra had a reaction similar when she was spayed.

She ended up getting a antibiotic cream to put on twice per day. You can't even tell now (been a good month). She did pop 2 stitches though, which was the cause of the infection/rash.

maybe a disolving suture just below the skin due to a bit of a larger knot used by the vet. should clear it self up.

that looks pretty clean , the vet saw it 2 days ago so you haven't neglected anything as far as her care .
Try to find some Vetrycyn -- it comes in so handy for everything including a gucky ear .

I'd maybe do a warm compress for a few minutes a couple times a day. It looks like a mild suture reaction to me.

Suki had one on her incision line after spay and we just kept an eye on it. I went away on its own. It is most likely a suture that is dissolving and the skin is having a mild reaction to the irritation. Almost like an ingrown hair.

It does look like ingrown hair without the hair though... I was considering a warm compress since it does magic to ingrown hair... will wait couple more days and see what happens.
