Hello everyone! I have a 7 month old calico kitten named Fiona. She recently got spayed and bounced back like nothing had ever happened.....except for chewing off 2 of her stitches within the first 48 hours!!!!! Her incision site looks fine, just a little red but it seems pretty much closed up. She's also on antibiotics twice a day. I called the vet this morning and they told me to bring her back in around 10am. She's acting completely normal, eating fine, jumping around and playing. I'm still really nervous!!!!

She should be fine with the antibiotics. As long as the incision site is not oozing or swollen it should subside over the next week. If it remains swollen and/or if she goes off her food or playing, go back to the vet. To keep her from tearing out stitches, a baby T-shirt (cut off the top of it to make a tube) or large sock should keep her from biting at them.....but it should be slightly snug but not too tight and of a material (e.g. cotton) that breathes.
