Dr. Streeter said that there should be no reason for concern with swelling this late after amputation as long as he is acting OK and does not have a fever. I advised her via phone conversation that it was VERY swollen and oozing, but she assured me as long as fluid is pink and clear, no worries. I almost wanted to hear she would advise a drain because it looks just terrible, but I know she knows best. So, for now, we will press on with the warm compresses and washing LOTS of towels! :o) Sarge got to lay in the sunshine and munch on his venison leg this afternoon. He really seems to be in great spirits. It is kind of funny when the vet(s) asks about his energy level…. he has ALWAYS been a very low activity boy. We even screened him for thyroid disease at one point because I have never had such a chill young dog before. I just say he is his typical “lethargic self”. :o)
