Sick Puppy

My 2-month old golden retriever puppy was spayed about 4 days ago. Today I noticed a pretty hard lump directly underneath her stitches. She has also vomited about 6 times today, most of it in the last 5 or so hours. She is not eating, and she drinks a little bit, but usually vomits soon after she drinks. She is also sleepy and listless, which is very unusual for her. Could she have an infection from her surgery or is there something else wrong with her? Please help, I'm worried about my new little puppy!!

Gracie,the only thing to suggest is to bring her back to the vet who did the spaying and right way,it could be nothing,sometimes these bumps develop,but since she is also physically ill she could have an infection,she needs a vet ASAP,before she gets sicker....Good Luck with the little sweetie,please let us know..

Please bring her to the vet ASAP. I have a funny feeling that these symptoms
(apart from the knot) have nothing to do with her spay surgery.

Does she have fever also?
