I have a female dog which was spayed 2 days ago and she has licked her sutures open. A piece of inside fat I beleive is outside but I have to wait until Monday am to take to vet. Any suggestions??

I REALLY don't think you can wait till monday. This needs to be seen to now. WHY didn't you put an elizabethan collar on her? Why didn't you stop her licking?

You need to get her to the vet before monday. Infection can set in very quickly and really not worth the risk. If she had a standard spay(old fashioned), she should have been made to wear an e-collar. Because this was a surgical incision and is deep, I wouldn't suggest putting anything on it until she has seen a vet.

VET NOW! VET NOW! VET NOW!

Get in the car, now, and get to the emerg vet.




(of note, though, my dog didn't have an e-collar for her spay, but I kept her from licking it too)
