Hello,

My 8yr old Anatolian Shepherd had a mass removal surgery done about a month ago. At the end of the second week of recovery he developed a large seroma (it was tested and not infected). The vet has since put 2 different drains in and although they work, the seroma re-develops after each time. He just had his most recent drain removed on Sunday and today (5 days later) I notice a small amount of liquid coming back. I really don’t want him to have to go into another surgery 🙁 will the seroma go away on its own? He doesn’t seem to be in any pain and the seroma is not warm to the touch, and it is much smaller this time around but I am worried it is going to just keep growing.

Good morning. In my personal experience, a seroma will go away on its own…. it just takes time. So unless it is on a spot where it will be likely to cause discomfort or irritation, perhaps just leaving it to give it time to clear up on its own, is a good option. You may want to confirm with your vet. Best of luck!☺️🐾
