Default Open spay incision?

My 3-yr-old, Guinness, was spayed this morning to remove a tumor. All went well, and my husband picked her up. She was in a ball, so he didn't look at the incision at the vet. When I got home from work, she uncurled for me, and I'm pretty sure the outer incision (closed with adhesive) is open. I can't see too far in, so I think the inner incision is still sutured shut. I didn't want to look too long/touch it. The vet is closed, but she is not bleeding or acting unusual. She even ate. Any ideas about what I should do? I can't get rid of this pit in my stomach. Thanks!

I don't have any experience of this but if I was in your position I would take her back to the vet when they are next open. Better to be safe than sorry

I agree with Chashmere Skeleton. She will need to go to the vet and get them to reclose it.

I would take her back to the vet as well, if the wound is open infection could easily spread inwards if it gets dirty. You could try to call them to see if they can make an exception or if there's another vet available.
