Has anyone ever dealt with this? Our dog had ACL repair surgery in July. He should be completely healed. He was doing pretty well but he started licking it and Scott (my husband) noticed a lump. He mentioned the same lump to the vet over a month ago. He wasn't concerned. But the next visit (a little over a week ago) he said there was an infection, that likely Dom reacted to the suture. He told us the surgery would be quick and easy, a small incision to remove it. THEN, the surgery came, they found an infection with cloudy fluid. They added a 300 dollar culture to see what it was. They did a huge 4 inch incision and shaved his whole leg again like day 1. I was furious! All I can do is trust though. So today they call and say it's a staph infection. They blew it off as no big deal. I was already furious they did the whole huge incision and shaved his leg, and we were told THREE MORE MONTHS of full recovery. I about fell over! I literally worked in a vet's office for 12 years, and rescued 200+ dogs, having 5 of my own, one that lived to be 17 and a half. I have never once heard of this. When I read about it, they talk about a variety of things but one of them is unclean medical instruments. I am just trying to figure it out. Was hoping someone else had any knowledge on this.
