My cat has some pus in her surgery site! Help! Vet said to apply betadene and continue the antibiotics. Is that enough?

She got spayed about 8 days back. I used to apply betadene twice and give the antibiotics even before the infection showed up. If all this was working then it shouldn't have happened at all right? There's some swelling and little redness and moisture.

Follow the vet's recommendations. If cat litter got in there, yes it will get infected. Some scars heal fine and some fill up with fluid and need to be drained. Trust your vet and if the infection does not look better after a week, bring her back in to be looked at. If your vet is reliable, he/she will not charge you again for the visit, only for an antibiotic or any other medicines that she might need. ^_^
