post operative hernia following bitch spay
Hi I am very concerned as 11 month old Ellie was spayed urgently 8 days ago for prolonged season bleeding which went well. However on the weekend I noticed she developed a large lump around one side of the wound. I have limited her activities as much as possible such as stopping her from bounding and jumping. Yesterday I took her back to the vets as I was concerned and it turns out she has an internal suture rupture which has caused a hernia and needs this repairing under anaesthetic this friday coming.
If this is a post operative complication then do I have to pay for this operation?? any advice would be appreciated as much as I have watched Ellie over the last 8 days I cannot stop her every movement.
