Q. My kitten just got sterilized, what should I do with the stitches? Should I put neosporin on it? She keeps on licking herself. Do I put a shirt on her

Answered By

A. You don't need to do anything with the stitches unless they Starr oozing or weeping in which case antibiotics maybe required. A buster collar/head cone is the best thing for her. You can get them from your pet store or vet
