Stitches removed, wound reopened
Recently our GSD had some lumps removed (non-cancerous fortunately), and yesterday we took her to get her staples and stitches removed. Today, it appears that one of the sites is reopening even though she hasn't been scratching or licking it at all. Should we be concerned about this? The vet told us not to worry, but it's getting a little bigger. Is this normal in GSDs? Will it heal on it's own?

I would take the dog back to the vet so they can check it.

Why not take photos and email them to the vet, that would be a quick and easy way to get an answer. Or take him back for a quick visit to have them inspect it and let you know
