Customer Question

I have an ACD who is 11 days post TPLO. He saw the vet yesterday due a little leakage from the wound site sutures. Vet cartied examination and extensive manupulation. Leg got very swollen following and has been leaking from the lowest suture site sufgicient to mark bedding and matt fur on the belly. Over all swelling is slightly less, but dog is using the leg less today. But does walk well on it once moving for toileting purposes. Should I seek veterinary intervention.

Can you tell me wat medications Nikki is taking currently? The vet he saw yesterday was the one who performed the surgery?
