5 Stages Of Infected Dog Spay Incision Healing Process


Redness or inflammation around and along the incision can be mild and severe, depending on the level of infection.

Pus Or Drainage

An infected dog’s spay incision wound can produce a yellowish, bad-smelling fluid (pus).


Solid swelling may form around the wound in dogs that exhibit high activity levels during the recovery period.


If the spay incision is healing properly after administering medication, then a new pink/red tissue will cover the wound.


New tissue is replaced by scar tissue which is stronger and thicker. The infected spay incision is healed.
