Redness around incision

Postby Otis » Sat Oct 09, 2010 1:55 pm

Ashes had TPLO surgery on Wednesday. She has some swelling around her ankle and deep red/purple around the incision sight. No oozing of the stables. I'm at work and when I came in, my coworker who is training to be a vet tech said it didn't look good and that I needed to call the vet. I'm aware that some bruising is normal. I called the hospital but the phone line wasn't working, so I called the e-vet that opporates out of the same place and they said it would be a good idea to bring her in. I'm really strapped for cash right now, but I will bring her in after work if I'm still worried. If I post a picture would anyone be able to tell if this is e-vet worthy or normal?

Is it warm to the touch?

I'd post a pic, maybe it will give a better idea.
