Hi,
A few weeks ago I brought in my hamster (Bob) to get a tumor removed but I'm a bit concerned how the stitches have not dissolved. I have been giving him the medicine he was subscribed, though unfortunately last week (or the week before?) one of them spilt by accident. How long does it usually take for them to dissolve, because on your website I saw it was supposed to be 4-7 days but it's already been much more then that.
I'm not sure if this is the correct email for these kind of inquires, but please feel free to correct me if I am mistaken.
Thank you and regards,

Pl bring hamster to the clinic for check up. Stitches should dissolve in 14-28 days if they are absorbable ones. Your hamster's stitches may be nylon and need to be removed by the vet as they don't dissolve by themselves.
