Infection after surgery is always a cause for concern, and care must be taken to keep the surrounding area clean. You will need to observe any post-operative surgical incisions for swelling, redness or oozing. Infections can get complicated quickly. If any of these conditions are present, or if you have any questions, contact your veterinarian for further advisement.
If you are concerned about your ability to prevent your cat from getting its surgical site dirty, cage rest can be used to hold your cat in an enclosed environment until the sutured skin has healed adequately. An Elizabethan collar can also be used to prevent your cat from licking or biting at the healing skin – which may itch as it heals.
