Spay Incision - Healing OK? Dog 8 years old.

I had my dog spayed last Thursday (6 days ago) and I *believe* her incision is healing properly, but I'm looking for your opinion (photo attached). She is 8 years old and the vet told me to pay "extra, extra" attention to her during the recovery process so I am (maybe) being overly cautious. There never were any visible stitches so I think internal and glue was used. The first image is what her incision looks like now on day 6, and the second image is what it looked like on day 2.

Side note, just to give my two cents on the "suitical" (surgery recovery suit) instead of an e-collar. We tried the inflatable donut and the Cuddle Cone but she was incredibly uncomfortable with both. She thrashed around so much trying to get them off that I was worried she would tear her incision by doing so! We tried baby onesies and she would only find a way to slip out of them regardless of size. We have had much success with the suitical which we only keep on her when we can't keep a constant watch. Initially I was concerned it wouldn't fit and allow the incision to "breathe" (ordered online) but there ended up being plenty of extra fabric and air room in her tummy area. It was steep at around $40, but worth every penny after the few days of stress trying to find the right product. Just thought I would throw that out there for anyone looking for alternatives. The third photo is of her in her suit. Don't let the sad eyes fool you, she is a very spoiled pupper

All of the photos I'd attached say permission denied - maybe this is because I am a new forum member? Hopefully you will not have trouble viewing them. If so let me know and I can try to find an alternative for viewing.
