Good morning. Sorry about your pup. Is your dog still on antibiotics? Is it warm or painful to the touch? How large is the lump? When is your next scheduled follow up? Depending on the answers, you might want to get back in to the vet sooner. If you feel uncomfortable with the answer that you are getting, you could always ask for a second opinion as well.

Hello,
It might be scar tissue which will heal over time. But it could also be infection or dehiscence which might need immediate veterinary intervention. Please call the vet who did the surgery and ask to be seen for a recheck. I do these for free for any of my patients. I hope this helps.
