    Cat was spayed a week ago, and the wound looks open, should I take her back?

    Does this look like the wound is open enough to warrant another visit to the vet, or do you think she'll heal fine.
    It doesn't even look like the stitches are in the right spot, and they've been like that from the beginning, but maybe i'm wrong I'm no vet.
    We didn't give her a collar and she licked it , but we gave her the collar now. The other kitten we took at the same time seems to have healed fine without the collar though.

    I'm no expert either but if I were you I would call the vet and take her to get this checked out. You don't want it to get worse and she may need medication. Please keep us posted.

    Doesn't look right to me either, it doesn't look like its infected yet but it could go in that direction.

    Linda is right, open wounds could lead to an infection, i would take her back to the vet just be sure that the healing is going on well.

Please reply to this thread with any new information or opinions.
