Hello Liz, I'm Dr. Deb and I'll do my best to help you with your concern about Blaine.First, let me express me sincere condolences on your loss. I know this must have been absolutely heartbreaking to lose him this way. Unfortunately, complications such as infections are always possible when any sort of surgical procedure is performed...whether in humans or in our canine patients. Are these infections secondary to poor surgical technique or a suppressed immune system or bacteria in the blood which settled in the surgery site? Any and all are possibile explanations. If an infection or complications associated with the surgery were not suspected by the first vet and aggressively addressed, then this would be cause for blame, in my opinion. I hope this helps although I know it doesn't ease the pain you're suffering from the loss of your beloved pet. Deb
