I am a first time cat owner and I’m worried sick about my cat’s spay. She just had the operation yesterday. It’s not bleeding or oozing, it isn’t hot and it doesn’t smell. But it does look open to me. She has internal sutures and the site was glued. Unfortunately I didn’t get a photo yesterday, but it looked open then too and bloody. She’s licked at it but not aggressively, just normal grooming. I really wanted to put the E-Collar on her (even though the vet said it wasn’t necessary unless she really wouldn’t leave it alone) but she was growling so much and freaking out, and got it off. I haven’t attempted again because I don’t want to stress her out anymore. She was in heat at the time of her spay if this changes anything about how the vet would choose to close the incision? Does anyone have any experience with a spay that looked like this? Sorry this is so long-winded but I’m obviously an anxious wreck. Thank you so much!!
