Customer Question

My female cat had surgery last Friday May6th. (fixed). She received a glue to close the wound. For the first 7 days things looked normal. No pain medicine was needed. She licked a little but not too much. I check her (Calico) every day and the skin was clear and no redness. Tonight this is red and a line of hard substance is evident where a scar should be. She is in no pain and she is not licking the area. What is causing the redness and has substance around the scar?
