Post Spay Lump

Today is th 7th day after the spay and Allie is healthy, active, running around and eating great. I gave her wound a good look over today, its not red and is closing nicely but there is 2 somewhat soft lumps on the wound..One towards the top and one on the bottom

Im pretty sure when she came home I saw a lump already there but never closely inspected it. In fact I know I saw it there.. I pressed one of the lumps gently today and it caused her no discomfort or reaction.

Is this normal? It was the same temperature as the rest of her

Edit, I just pressed it again, it is not soft it is somewhat hard....
Guess I made this post for nothing brcause googling already told me its normal, I dont know why the first time it felt soft.

Yep sorry I only made this post because I thought it was a soft lump

Allie says thanks for looking and she is more or less back to normal

Edited to remove photo as it significantly exceeded forum requirements for size.

I foster kittens - LOTS of kitten - and I find that bump very normal. Around day 10 it starts to go away. If it is red or hot or she is constantly licking it then please get it looked at by a vet.

Agree with others - don't fret. It is not unusual for various reasons - it is an operation after all. Even aside from the immediate bump - there can be stitches that are slow to dissolve and scar tissue.i
