I had my boy neutered in mid-late January, and aside from some discomfort for a few weeks afterwards (skin irritation), he's seemed to be fine. He's always licked himself a lot, so I never really noticed any difference. The vet used the "dissolvable" stitches so they did not have to be removed, and he was checked 2 and 3 days after the surgery for the skin problems. (I was given a cream, that seemed to help a little bit.)
Well today I was giving him an extra good grooming, and what do I see in the incision area? A big loopy stitch! This area was a little bit red yesterday and the day before, but it wasn't at all tender, so I didn't worry about it.
So now what do I do? It doesn't hurt him at all, he's not even slightly sensitive in the area surrounding it. But it's definitely there, arcing up like a rainbow with both ends still in his body.
Do I wait for it to come out on its own? Should I take him to a vet to get it removed?
Thanks for advice!!!
