My 7 month old husky got spayed last Tuesday, we've been checking her incision all through the day every day. Tonight at 11:30 I checked it and it was wide open with absolutely no stitches, I've yet to see her lick it until now that its open. I can't find a single emergency vet that's still open in this small town, the next open vet is Monday! I'm scared!!! What do I do? I'm going to go first thing tomorrow and buy her an Elizabethan collar to keep her from licking it. But with no open vets what do I do about an open incision? It doesn't seem to be bleeding often, just clear liquid puss due to an open wound

Well there is nothing special you can do but finding a vet or an emergency center. Also Please try to keep her in a cage (or a limited area like the carry box or something like that ) and limit her movements , and try to put a sterilized gas under the surgery site (the one that we use for humans and you can find it in first aid box) and if you do not have it please try to keep the area clean.

** Important note : do not close the wound .... and do not put the sterilized gas on the would it self ... just try to put it under the dog's body ...

Please try to find a vet ASAP, thats the best thing that you can do for you dog.

Good Luck.
