We got our dog from a local shelter over a month ago. She was fixed the day before we picked her up and thus far, her incision has healed perfectly. I spend a lot of time with her during the day so even though it appears to be fully healed, I still keep an eye on it. Today I noticed (again, more than a month later) that it is a little swollen and red with a purple-ish bump on the scar. It has me worried, so any information would be great. Thank you!

My dog had the same thing happen after her spaying. The vet said to take iodine and a cotton swab and dab it a couple times a day on it. Then when I brought him in he just cut the strings and that helped with the color and tugging of the skin. It will get better!
