These show the healing progress of the scab at her incision site.
We took Poof to the vet after she managed to remove two of the nine surgical staples on her own and started chewing at the scab. After checking her, he said that the incision is healing well and proceeded to remove the rest of them at 8 days (the usual length of time for staples to be kept in is 10-14 days). As you can see, the area was a bit raw afterwards.
