You can do several things. Put some Ben Gay around the incision- not on it- around it. The taste is bad and they will usually leave it alone. If that fails you can get a Buster or Elizabethan collar from the vet or pet shop. This is one of the cone things that goes around their neck so they cannot reach the incision. Happy Thanksgiving!
