Ask a Vet Archive

When it comes to your pet's health, there's no such thing as a dumb question. Search questions real clients have submitted to our popular Ask a Vet Q&A series, and then submit a question of your own.

  • My kitten just be spayed. How can I keep incision site clean and dry? Do I need use bandage or some cat gel or cat wound spray? Do I need disinfect the wound?

    I recommend that you talk to your veterinarian about this. They know your cat’s medical history and can give you the best advice on caring for your cat. In most cases making sure that your cat can’t lick or chew at the incision, as well as keeping her out of any water, will be all that you need to do as far as the incision goes.

    Most cats don’t need a bandage or any wound spray on the area. If you think that it has gotten dirty or if you see any swelling, bleeding  or redness in the area of the incision you should take her to see your veterinarian.
