A post/spay stitch protector for Gabby girl!

Gabby was spayed 2 days ago and she really wanted to lick those stitches (naturally). I hate those collar thingies so I put a little gauze pad on her stitches and wrapped one of those stretch things around her to hold it in place. You know, the one's they put on your arm after a blood test. Anyway, she is doing great and not messing with the semi/bellyband at all!

After Shelby opened up her incision, I did the same thing. Great minds think alike!

Lol, Beth. I guess any belly band would do?

that is a great idea...just be sure to check it and that it is not getting red. I was thinking it needed air to heal.
Get well soon Gabby...you are way too cute!!!

Lynn, I have been wondering the same thing. So far it looks good. I tried taking it off but she goes crazy. I think the ends of the thread (more like wire) are sticking her and the pad keeps that from happening. Maybe I should cut the wire ends off real short???
