What a normal, healing dog spay incision looks like
- A normal, healthy incision should be closed at its edges.
- The skin surrounding the incision may be pinkish in color, which is a normal part of the inflammation process.
- Slight skin bruising may be evident.
Beside above, what should a spay incision look like after a week? A recent spay incision should be a clean, straight wound and the edges should be sealed with glue, stitches or staples. The skin will be slightly swollen and a slight reddish-pink color around the edges. As the incision heals, you will want to check the area for redness, swelling or discharge.
Similarly one may ask, how long does it take for spay incision to heal?
How long does it take for a scab to fall off after surgery?
It might take a few weeks, but minor wounds should heal on their own. The scab will eventually fall off.
