Q. My dog was operated on two days ago and every so often she will jump up in the air for no reason. Is this the stitches pulling and should i be worrie

A. If she has been spayed, sometimes the sutures in the abdomen can be a little painful or cause discomfort, this is most likely the reason for her behavior. as long as she seems happy otherwise and eating normally, she should be fine. just keep an eye on the incision site, it might be a little swollen, that's normal as well. if it swells up too much or starts oozing bloody fluids then call your vet.
