Default Bleeding nipple (after surgery)

Hi everybody! I'm a new member, a couple of days ago my hedgehog, Minni, who is 4 years old, had surgery to remove her uterus as the vet noticed, through an ultrasound exam, there was something strange in there. The surgery went good, Minni is as lively as always, she's eating, running and all. Yesterday I noticed that she has a little blood stain right where one of her nipples is (the red area is a little larger than it appears to be in the pic) and today the blood is still there, and still red so I think the little wound could be 'fresh'. It doesn't seem anything serious, I think she may have hurt herself while trying to scratch her belly, where the stitches from the surgery are. What do you think? Can it be something else? Any tips on how to avoid this? I am scared she could hurt herself more if she reaches the stitches..Thanks!

This is a question that should be directed to your vet. Just as if something like that happened to you after surgery you would contact your doctor. Just give them a call and maybe send the picture to them.

Seek help from vet as they can guide you in a better direction.

This thread is a year old and the OP hasn't been back to the forum since posting the question. Please check the date on a thread before posting.
