Wrinkles has 2 incisions and the bottom one is red and has some clear discharge.
Is that ok?
I showed her breeder pictures of her paw and she felt bad about that.
Her paw is fine now.
Why would her paw get that way?
The vet did tie her down for the surgery and thinks that is what caused it.

When was her surgery, M2M? Slight inflammation is normal, the skin does react often to glue. Clear fluid is often a sign of swelling (red fluid may be a sign that the fluid from the swelling has mixed with blood, both entirely normal). Concerning things to watch for: Frank bright red blood, thick pus, and green, black or bluish coloration of the skin.

As far as her paw goes, pets seldomly have any problems when we tie them down to the table. Most especially because we're stabilizing them on the table with a firm tie down...not a harsh one. But, be that as it may, she may have either been pinched by the strap (trapping blood down that leg only) or she may have received fluids in that leg that went under the skin and caused it to become puffy. The main thing to notice here is that there's no infection in the leg and there's no necrosis. Whatever the cause may be, it was temporary and it's likely your veterinarian couldn't have prevented whatever the damage that occurred. Both situations I mentioned above can happen from time to time, especially on sensitive breeds such as our own.

I am only used to work on a hospital for humans. But it happens often that the fluid that should go into the vein goes under the skin instead causing an inflammation or it could be a small benign clod of blood that the body dissolves it selves.

(It is times like this I think its hard to write in another language. I hope I made myself clear)

It's good to hear that this is normal. May her incision continue to heal perfectly!

It sounds like she is doing great. I agree it was probably so fluid in her paw that reabsorbed when her circulation was restored to normal. My experience is also only with humans as an RN but it sounds likely.

Thanks Everyone,
It was not fluid it in her paw.
The I.V. was in her left paw.
The vet believes it was from the strap being tied to tight on her.
The surgery was monday.
It was finished at 11:05 am.
I have the log from the vet.
The discharge is clear and it is not alot.
It is not a infection.
She still has a cough from the tube that was in her but her voice is no longer hoarse.
My vet is one of the best vets in the area.
I know it is not thier fault that her paw was like that.
It is fine now.
She is curled up sleeping next to me right now but was being hyper before.
Here is the website to the lap spayif anyone wants to see how it is done.

Sry Mews I wasn't clear. I remember you saying her IV was in the other leg. I just meant from the strap or the way her foot might have been hanging downward a little and some natural fluid pooled there until she got up and moved around. It sounds like you have a really concientious vet who did a great job.

It is so nice to have a vet that you can give advice to and they will listen.
That could be what happened.

I'm glad to hear she's all better! You expect those scars from the hives to fade away, right?

I always heard that if you poke a chicken and its juices run clear it's cooked! So maybe it's a good thing?! :LOL::LOL::Hysterical:

Forgive me I couldn't resist! How is she now?

By the way I'm not trying to suggest that Cleo looks at all like a chicken! She is a very pretty cat. Just thinking of that episode of Friends where rachels sphynx gets called a chicken. LOL

Are you sure you were talking about Cleo?
This post is about Wrinkles.
She is fine now.
I hope a judge does not squeeze her at the show?
