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

Customer reply replied 28 days ago
The area where surgery was done is not healed yet he is on antibonics and rimadel
Customer reply replied 28 days ago
He is eating and drinking but very uneasy on feet and as a hard time going number 2

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?
