• My dog was Spayed a week ago. She has developed a lump where her stitches are. Is that normal?

    Hi Katie,
    There can be many causes for the lump including scar tissue, a reaction to the suture, or infection. One week is a time period during the healing process that it is common for you to observe some changes. It would be best to call the veterinarian that performed the spay and schedule a recheck exam to ensure that it is nothing concerning.
