Hello and welcome. I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian, and would like to help you today.

If it was just re-wrapped yesterday, I would plan to leave it on for another 48-72 hours. We'd expect it to be drying up by the stage. Once you unwrap it, if she pays it any attention then do keep the foot covered with a baby sock (as its breathable and will aid it drying out better) +/- an ecollar until it is fully healed. If it looks moist or weepy, you can spot clean it with warm salt water (1tbsp salt to a pint warm water) as needed.

I hope this information is helpful.
