Hi I have read your article about seromas and how to best leave them alone. Now my kitten has one after her desexing surgery however hers keeps getting bigger. At what size does it become concerning?
It doesn’t look infected and she is behaving just fine.
Thank you!

Good morning-
Have you already gone to your follow up visit to the vet? If not- I would ask them to look at it. Meantime, so long as it is not warm or sore to the touch or bothering her, I would just keep a close watch. If her behavior changes (lethargic, loss of appetite) I would call the vet ASAP. I’m assuming you’ll have a few kitten check ups in the near future, so your vet can also help you monitor it. Seromas can take a very long time to resolve. Best of luck!!

I agree with Sarah! Seromas aren’t inherently dangerous but they can also hide an underlying issue so it’s best to have your vet check it. Thank you for having your kitten spayed. It is so important to help them live longer healthier lives and control the over burdened pet population. Best wishes to you both. Let us know what happens.
