My eight month old lab/hound puppy was spayed almost two months ago. Her sutures healed up without a problem, and she's been happy and healthy since her surgery.
Today, I noticed a lump on her skin, where the stitches had been. It is a marble-sized white bump, surrounded by red, puffy skin. The part of the scar directly beside it is dark red. As of today, she is lethargic, and has diarrhea; however, I am not sure if this is relevant, as both of my dogs are showing these irregularities (assumed to be from a long car trip over mountains, and an unexpected diet change).
I will be taking her to the vet first thing tomorrow morning, but I am looking for quick advice.
If both dogs are showing it, and you just had to change foods, maybe it's a reaction to the food. Good on ya for taking them in.

Sounds like an infection. DEFINITELY SEE A VET ON MONDAY. (Hope you're already there).
Could be tumor however a vet would be able to tell better ... let us know about their health.
