Q. My dog had fho 12/1/15. Seroma at area off an on. Should I be concerned this far out from surgery

A. did you mean the first of December 2015 or 12 of January 2016? if the later is the correct date I wouldn't be too worried. If the first date is the one you should consult your veterinarian about this as it's been more than 6 weeks and this is not very common after this period of time. If you really meant 12/01/2015 which is a year ago - it's not normal at all.
