It shouldn't be 1000 to have him look at it?

The walker clinic should cost about $80 just to walk through the door. Post surgical bleeding isnt uncommon, but its not something that should be ignored since it is possible for an animal to bleed to death. Did you call after hours? They are usually pretty good in these types of situations.

((HUGS)). I imagine he suggested opening her up to look if it was 1000. That means they didn't think it was just skin bleeders then right? Skin bleeders are extremely common and some pressure on them usually stops them. I also know that at Walker Rd Ani. Hosp. they will give you all your options. For any oozing incision one option is to open them up and check to see if it is something inside.

call you regular vet ASAP. They should be willing to deal with any complications from surgeries they did.

Hoping she is nothing major and she is feeling better today.

Keep her super, super quiet for sure....outside to potty on leash, no playing, no jumping on/off couch though.

Glad she is well. That is the "usual" thing. Skin bleeders are extremely common. But, it is better to be safe. Especially when the dog is "mature". There is a higher chance of bleeding from the "stumps" where the uterus is removed.

ETA...suture line bleeders are much more common in mature dogs also. They have more fat under the skin, more small vessels and therefore more vessels to possible bleed.

aw poor pup glad it turned out ok. bleeding from incision areas are pretty common that's why they try to get them to stay as quiet as possible... but try to tell a dog that. lol did you end up taking him back to whoever did it to re check him? wouldn't that be part of the fee if any complications occur to call them back?
