Veterinary questions? Ask a Vet for Answers ASAP
Hi, Welcome to Just Answer. I'm Chris, a small animal Vet based in the UK. I am reviewing your question and will get back to you as soon as possible
Thanks for your patience. Sorry to hear of this issue with Penny. In my opinion the ongoing discharge from the wound suggests one of two things either 1.) There is foreign material trapped in the wound causing ongoing inflammatory response and thus discharge or 2.) A structure such as a salivary gland or duct was perforated during the initial injury causing ongoing discharge of saliva into the wound causing a nine healing wound.
It sounds like you have give the would more than adequate opportunity to 'sort itself out'. Further exploration of the wound may need to be considered to assess the cause for the ongoing discharge, potentially a CT scan of the area could be very helpful in ruling out retained foreign material prior to embarking on further surgery, especially such a time since the initial injury. I would ask your vet about this possibility and to consider referring Penny for such an investigation.
I hope that answers your question? Please let me know if you need any further help or advice. Thank you for using JustAnswer, best wishes.
