help - incision open
I am waiting for a call back from my vet and it is taking time. In the meantime, I thought some of you might have an answer.
Cora was neutered last Thursday. Today is the 5th full day after operation. He was quite active in the morning and was running in the backyard. We have a tiny pond, which he fell in the 1st day of him joining our family. 6 months later and wiser, he again fell into the pond. It is cold now but water was not frozen. It smells bad and definitely not sanitary. Maybe because his stitches got wet ( we were told not to bathe him for two weeks) or he found a way to lick himself (he was wearing an e-collar but he is a smart one), now incision is open. It does not bleed or has any discharge. I have put a bandage on. Today is Christmas and my vet has not returned my calls. Should I worry... if so, how much? What can I do in the meantime?
