Help with itching after major surgery

My female just had a complete mammary chain removal on her left side 7 days ago, this was a major surgery. The vet said she has somewhere between 200 - 250 stitches and staples. She is due to get her staples out in the next 7 days. Someone from another post brought to my attention that there will be a severe "itch" factor with the healing process, something I had not thought about. Any suggestions as to what I can use to help with the itch and healing with an incision this large. I feed a raw prey model diet with coconut oil and golden paste.
