Can you share a few pictures of what you're seeing?

Is there any potential for injury? Are you seeing any limping? Is he still eating and drinking well?

The area where surgery was done is not healed yet he is on antibonics and rimadel
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
He is eating and drinking but very uneasy on feet and as a hard time going number 2
Dog Specialist: PitRottMommy, Veterinary Nurse replied 8 months ago

I imagine it's certainly making walking and standing more difficult. Did I understand correctly that he still hasn't fully healed after 3 months post-op? What antibiotics are being given? What is your vet using them to treat?
