i will ask my vet this in the morning but in the meantime i'll throw it here.
Anyone know how long it is untili it's ok for kitty to lick her tummy after a spay surgery? the insturctions the vat gave me said to prevent it with bad tasting cream or the goofy looking collar but not for how long. They've got the dissolvable stiches inside with glue on the outside. One does not have the goofy looking collar because she does well enough with just the cream but i'm concered with her licking it tonight if the cream wears off. how big of a worry do you think that'd be? Why aren't they allowed to lick if there's no outside stiches to risk pulling out?
