My cat recently got nuetered for retained testicle. It was in his inguinal canal and incision is barely a centimeter or two. After the surgery the vet told me to clean the incision twice daily with methylated spirit and then apply derma gel spray on it I've been doing that since and he also went for follow ups for two days after the surgery for antibiotic shots which my vet gives just incase there's an infection developing. Now 5 days after the surgery today when I was routinely cleaning his incision I noticed a tiny gap btw the incision I don't know if it's normal I might have seen a lil bit of discharge too not sure though. But I'm crazy worried it may be infected. He's fine otherwise eating normal not much though but normally too doesn't eat that much so nothing to worry about that. He's active too a bit calmer than before but otherwise looks fine. I don't know if I should take him to the vet I don't want to unless it's totally necessary which I am not sure about bcz his vet is 1 hour 30 mins from us. I'm attaching some pictures of his incision if anyone can help me out.
