1 week infected spay incision cat.
My vet told me to put the cone on for 1 week after the spay surgery.
It does look like the incision is opening a bit, but just the skin.
Then later she had some separation that was caused by a reaction to the suture materials.
Just this past wednesday night (exactly two weeks post op), i noticed her incision was red and swollen on one end.
Under no circumstances should a cat with a fresh surgical incision be allowed to go outdoors.
The underlying muscle looks intact.
Do not allow your cat to jump or engage in any strenuous activity that.

Soft swelling at the incision site, drainage, redness and oozing can be symptoms of a bacterial infection.
Every dog is going to heal a little differently, of course, but the healing time for a spay is pretty standard.
