  • I would def. call the vet in the morning- they will probably want to see her b/c that is way to early for her stiches to come out- Good Luck!

  • Yes you need to take her to the vet. I had a cat that was very active after being spayed and she swelled up around the incision-the stitches were still there but she had to have the area drained. Hope she has been seen by now and is OK.

  • I would call the vet and ask.
    Is it red, hot, or pussie?

  • Call the vet for sure. That's way early for stitches to be coming out, and you want to make sure everything is ok.

  • I would call the vet. When I got Zebra fixed I locked her in a room w/ food,water, and a litter box and checked her stitches once a day. I didn't want to take the chance of her getting out. She was in the room for like 2 wks I believe. I'm so glad I got her fixed. I got her in 6/07 and got her fixed this year because she got prego every yr. Now that she is fixed she hardly ever wants out. She was a stray when I got her.

  • TO THE VET.....DUH!

  • probably a hernia, they're supposed to be less active and out is not good! pull her food and take her to the vet in the morning! they need 8 hours of not eating or drinking if they need to do any type of surgery, you'd be better off planning ahead just in case!
