I had my 6 month old kitten neutered 9 days ago and everything seemed fine. His behavior is completely normal (still insane) and he shows no signs of discomfort. A few days after I brought him home, though, I noticed a scab had formed at one of his incisions. I didn't think much of it, since he seemed untroubled by it and there were no signs of infection.
I figured it would just drop off.
But today, the scab is still there and I've noticed little spots of blood where he's been sitting. The vet says to keep an eye on it, but it's probably normal healing. Still, bleeding a week after the fact seems odd--shoud I at least try to clean the area or put something on the scab to prevent infection? (Forgot to ask the vet, and now they're closed!) Recommendations appreciated!
