I don't like the look of it either. If she were my dog, I would take her in to have a vet look at it, preferably soon. If you don't do that, at the very least put Neosporin plus pain relief on it a minimum of 4 times per day, keep her quiet (no running or jumping), and keep a very close eye on it.

My Ivy was spayed in January and her incision didn't show near the redness or "open-ness". They used surgical glue for her though, no staples. Here is a photo of her incision at about 36 hours post-op, no redness, no "open looking" areas:

I agree..I would put Neosporin on it too and that might help it heal better. Keep us posted as how Ivy is doing.

I would go with the neosporin with pain also. If it gets redder or feels warm, I would take her to vet. But, I admittedly am a bit of a hypochondriac when it comes to my babies.

It looks red to me too. Laurel and Violets weren't red at all, but they had sutures that were removed by the vet.

To me it looks like it's really red and maybe starting an infection, I would take her into any vet you can to look at it, especially if your not comfortable with the look of it. I hope everything's okay though

Just keep an eye on it and use the Neosporin. It doesn't look alarming, just a little red and irritated (which is not unusual for using staples). Just be sure its not getting more red or swollen.

I know nothing about this but I really hope she's doing fine. Sounds like everyone's saying it's just a little irritated. I would have taken her to the vet just for peace of mind. I hope she is all better real soon.

I do want to add, our vet told us we should get in touch if it looked infected. And when I asked how would I know, he said it should basically look better and better each day, "If it doesn't, give me a call."

I got the Neosporin Plus pain and used that last night and this morning. Of course I took a picture AFTER putting the neosporin on so it looks AWFUL in the picture since it's all glossy.
This morning it was a little less swollen but the redness hasn't reduced too much.
Since they removed some teeth, they actually gave me an antibiotic (Clindamycin) liquid that I'm giving her twice a day. She's not acting like she's in more pain than I expected. She is eating and drinking. She has pee-pee'd normally, but hasn't pooped yet.
I am willing to take her to the EVet if need be, but I will see how it goes over the next few hours. I will post a photo in a few hours BEFORE I put the Neosporin so you can give me your opinion.
Thanks for all the feedback, everyone!!
