My dog recent got spayed 4 days ago and the incision is leaking
Is this normal after being spayed? Is a clear discharge with little blood mixed in. They used dissolving stitches. No smell.

Thank you for reaching out to us. Thank you for the photo. First of all, I would recommend sending that photo to the surgeon who has performed the surgery as he or she needs to know about the current situation. In some cases, it is normal for a small amount of blood or clear discharges to seep intermittently within a day or two after the surgery. Is she wearing an e-collar at all times? Also, do you restrain her from moving or carrying out any strenuous activities? Absolute rest is vital for a complete and full recovery from the surgical site. Wipe out the discharges and whatever that is oozing with gauze or sterile cloth. If there is nothing more leaking afterward, monitor her closely but make sure she is under absolute rest and immobility. If dripping or seepage is continuous, please call your vet immediately.
If you have any additional questions, please don't hesitate to come back to us!
