Hello and welcome to Just Answer. I am a licensed veterinarian and would be happy to answer your questions.
What kind of surgery are you referring to?
he had stomach surgery
how long before it's ok to not worry about the stitches?
Was the intestine itself cut into, or just the abdominal wall to look into the belly?
the stomach was I think
he ate some rubber
Ok, usually the incision into the stomach itself will start to seal itself off within 4-5 days. The abdominal incision (the one you can see) will be more or less healed in 7-14 days.
I hope that helps.
Is he licking at the stitches?
a little not too bad
How long ago was the surgery?
do they just lick or will they bite at it
either. Does he have stitches that have to be removed?
i have to go back for a checkup
You are welcome.
