Ruby on three the celebrity GSD

Ruby incision day 23 healing

I took some pictures last night of Ruby’s incision.  You can see where it is still having seepage.  In the middle and down at the bottom.  She had the three new staples put in at the bottom and the middle is where she ripped the stitch out.  It is a little off color in the pics, but I promise she is not dripping green goo.  It’s clear and slimy.  She is still on Clavamox and that is probably why it hasn’t gotten infected.  She has been on Clavamox off and on for the past two months.  She is resting without the cone on this morning before I leave for work today.  Such a good dog she is.

    Overall it sounds like Ruby is doing grrrreat! I wonder if she could be having a suture reaction. She probably has internal stitches and could be allergic to the suture material. This happened with our Codie Rae (also a rear leg amp female GSD) at her spay site. There was a spot that seemed like it never healed. There was a red bump and it seeped sometimes. Unfortunately neither my husband or I remember what the vet did to resolve it but CR was on antibiotics off and on for something like three months before the vet fixed it. So you might run the idea of suture reaction by your vet.
    Best to you and Ruby and sending lots of healing vibes to Ruby from the Oaktown Pack,
    Martha, Codie Rae and the OP
