2 Weeks after spay Lex's belly is swollen around the incision

Hi, Lexi our 7 month old hav was spayed 2 weeks ago. Her recovery went very well and the scar healed nicely. Today we noticed her belly is swollen in about a 1.5 inch circle around her incision. Has anyone seen this before? Thanks for your help! Deena

I'd call immediately and tell your vet. Let us know what the vet says, hope all is ok.

Hi, just back from the vet. The Dr. said it's a seroma. She said it's not uncommon and the fluid will absorb back into her body with in a couple of weeks.

Trust me, I know how it is. My vet must think I'm crazy because I've been in there with Oscar countless times!
