My cat had surgery and stitches taken out. Is it ok if she swallows tiny remnants of the bandage tape?

Hello,
Without knowing more I would say it’s best to call the vets who did the surgery and ask them. Typically tape isn’t biodegradable in the stomach. A little tiny piece probably isn’t a problem. But the type and amount might be so call to check. Best wishes for a speedy recovery.
