I was giving Bella a brush this evening and I noticed her stitches have become red.

They have been fine until today, I think they may have started to become itchy and she has started licking them...she was desexed on Monday. The hernia stitches are fine (their is a shadow because of the way it is stitched) but the others are not. I am going to take her to the vet tomorrow, is there anything I can do tonight? Put a cover over them maybe? A bandage?
