Default Dog was spayed and sutures didnt dissolve

I have a dog who is 4 years old and her name is Prissy and she was spayed in september and she been having alot of problems since then, she been vomiting and wont hardly eat and been running fever, which she has done this before because she has inflammatory bowel and pancreatic insufficiency, so the vet said maybe that was causing ehr problems, but she kept getting a abscess on her incision and the vet kept draining it but it wouldnt get better, but friday she started running a high fever and her stomach got really hot and red, so I called her vet and he said to just wait and see if it got better, but I didnt think it needed to wait any longer so I carried her to another vet and he said what happened was the sutures under her skin that was suppose to dissolve didnt and it caused her to get a infection, so he had to drain the place and dig out the sutures. The vet I been carrying her too and the one that did the spaying didnt tell me that the sutures didnt dissolve, he just been draining the abscess. Anybody ever had this to happen to there dog, that the sutures didnt dissolve. I just dont understand why this happens.
