Infection? *update

My girl was spayed on Mar 27th, and I think she has an infection, what do you think? My town is too small for an emerency vet, so  Ihave to wait until tomorrow to take her in. But what do you think?

Vet says it was an allergic reaction to the sutures and not an infection.

  • Did it suddenly start looking that red or is that the way it's looked since it was done? If it's a sudden change, I think I'd go with infected. But if it's looked that way since she got spayed, then I'd say she just looks more irritated than others might, but no different than how I might get more redness from ripping off a band-aid than you might.

  • Is it warm to the touch?? Yeah, looks like it could be an infection. Needs to be checked to rule it out anyways!!

  • It just started looking like that today. She hasn't been licking or chewing at it, but she has been running around like her usual self.
