Call your surgeon: Could be a variety of things such as normal healing, a hernia, or even an infection. Infection typically with red skin. Hernia often associated with a lump. Depends on when he operation was, and the size of the pet used and technique of closure, which is why it is best to call your surgeon. They'll sort you out I'm sure. Hope this helps!
