msvette2u I don't like the fact it's oozing 2 days post's better to be safe than sorry and have someone peek at it.
It's integral that she wear the collar if she's licking enough to make it open up.

sandradnews Oh and thanks for helping me out so quickly!

sandradnews The vet actually made me an Elizabethian collar out of a mop bucket! He said she'd chew through the regular one. I have to admit it worked, but she kept bumping into stuff with it and just didn't "feel" right about it. The ProCollar is an inflatable collar made to be an alternative, we just got it on her. Worried she may have already done the damage.

Vet is not in, but I do have an emergency number to call. Just wondered if anyone else had seen this to know what would be normal vs not normal.

msvette2u Get her an e-collar (Elizabethan, not electric one) so she can't lick. Or a soft collar. Either way, stop the licking!

You really ought to get it looked at. Is the vet who spayed her in today??

Spay incision bleeding

Hi! I'm a former nurse, would have no worries if this were a person, but it's my Pepper, so I'm almost in a panic! My 7 month old Pepper was spayed Thursday morning and has done really well leaving her incision alone for the most part... but she has been licking it some, and she has been trying to run and jump since surgery. (We are trying to keep her as calm as possible.) Well, today I have noticed some slight bleeding along the incision line. (the amount of blood as you'd expect to see from a scratch.) I can't tell where it is coming from, it is all along her incision.. it looks very thin (probably because there is saliva mixed with it). There is no redness (other than the blood) and I can't see any areas opening or other drainage. She is very good at getting the cone off and working around her inflated procollar. Anyone know if this bleeding is normal? Are there tricks to using the procollar? Wish I could just put a skirt on her to keep her away from it =S
