My girls were spayed on Monday, we tried putting the collars the vet gave us on that evening but they were both clearly miserable and unable to relax with them on so we took them off. Since then neither has been particularly bothered with licking their wounds. This morning we got up and one of them has a pink patch on the shaved area, there is less fur growing back there too so I think she must have been licking it a lot in the night. During the day I think it's got a little larger and we've seen her licking it a few times too. We will put the collar on her after she's had her tea but is there anything else we can do to make her stop it? Any ideas why she is grooming there so much but isn't bothered with the wound itself? They had their post op checks last night and the vet said their wounds were fine, typically the sore looking patch appeared today!
