| | E-Collar accidentally came off at night, dog licks spay site (Day 9). Infected?
My 18 month Maltese recently got spayed about 9 days ago (10/28/2019). Her incision site has been healing well and was scabbing. It had no signs of infection such as redness, pus none of that.
However, last night the E-collar came off and she was able to access her incision site and licked it to hell - she removed all of the scabs and what's left is her raw skin.
Attached is a pic of her incision now (before licking vs. after). Should I be worried and bring her to a vet? or is it healing normally?
Thank you for the help. I may just be a tad paranoid but we're so close to the finish line - I'd rather not her have any complications. Thank you again.
