I brought her to the vet on Monday and that's when she said to put a hot compress on the site. The incision looks normal and healing very well. No redness at all. The swelling is probably like the size of an almond. I noticed it because she's always had a very lean and flat tummy (don't we all wish we could be like that lol). I thought it was unhealthy too to have fluid accumulate under the skin, but the vet said it happens. I will keep an eye on it, and they said to call them on Friday with an update. Hopefully it will go away soon. In the mean time she really likes snuggling up with the heat pad.
spaying 8 yo female
My Angie is 8 yo and we have date for spaying her on 1 of March. I am worried because her liver enzymes are not in norm. The vet says he is going to use gas and medications that are easy and fast to eliminate. Please, share your experience and thoughts about this.

Is the spay surgery medically necessary? Just curious. My only intact female was never spayed and passed at 14.5. (All my others were rescues and came neutered/spayed.)
@senjisilly no, it is not by medical reasons. We have a male basenji too and when she is coming in heat we have to separate them for at least a month. She is coming in heat 2 times a year. And I think is better for her just to avoid any eventual health problems with reproductive system.

@emilia May we know just why you have decided to spay her now ?
Unless spaying her is going to substantially improve her quality of life, I would advise against it.
