There isn't much to worry about. The suture is cut between each stitch so even if she pulls one out she won't pull them all out - it's not like pulling a thread on a piece of clothing. Also, there are two layers of stitches - one in the skin and another below, in the muscle. So if she pulls a stitch out she still will only have a hole in her skin, which will heal. So keep an eye on things but don't worry.

Unless she is OVER-licking, there shouldn't be a problem. Little Mika licked a bit but she was fine and we didn't use a cone or bandage on her.
