    Defaultredness around stitches...

    I guess it's normal with a little redness around the stitches?? I just want to peace my mind a little.

    I will try to get a good pic of it later...

    Completely normal. The skin is pulled tight to heal up, thus the redness. As soon as the stitches are removed the skin should look normal within a few days.

    That's good to hear. I worry too much. Even the vet think so LOL. I start to relax a little. I was a little hyper about she would loose the stitches, which the vet assumed me over and over she wouldn't do.

    (I mean by walking, laying down, get up etc. I don't let her lick, chew the stitches of course.)
