Default When will Pepper's stitches dissolve?

So, Pepper got spayed I belive on Sept. 10. They told me she has dissolvable stitches..but they look metal to me and don't look to be dissolving. they actually look like they are popping out more. Could they have made a mistake? I think I'm gonna take her back Monday anyways b/c *the area looks a bit red and theres little bumps by the stitches. They did say redness was normal though..but I dunno.

I would get it checked out. *My last one had the dissolvable ones on the inside layer of the incision and the ones on the outside were the ones that need to be removed.

It sure won't hurt to get it checked out. *Keegan had bumps *along his incision but they weren't red and it has smoothed out now. *I got Kiah after her spay and really wondered if she had been spayed since I can't see a scar.

When Jasmine was spayed she had the kind that dissolved. *The incision was okay but at both ends there were bumps. *The vet told me it was b/c they have to knot it several times in those places and it'll take a little bit longer to go away. *Hers also got red. *

I also agree that a quick trip to the vet for a look-see won't hurt. *

Hope Pepper feels better soon!
