    DefaultAm I overreacting?

    My 7 month old was recently spayed just under a month ago. On the scar where one of the stitches were she has what looks like a boil. It's raised, reddened and fairly large...looks like a boil or large pimple almost the size of a nipple.....Has anyone seen anything like this before?

    It may be a left over stitch that is trying to work it's way out. I would watch it if it doesn't go away in the next few days or at least get better I would have the vet check it out.

    Sophie had a horrible prolonged reaction to her 'dissolving' stitches.. it was a few months before her belly healed.

    I'd go to the vet.
