Default Veterinary Disconnect

Our rehab vet and I were discussing the common disconnect among veterinary professionals. Maybe it's just prevalent in our area but I don't think so... I was given no additional directions or instructions from weeks 2 to 6 in Bailey's recovery from her major surgery (tendon cut-reattach surgery). Thankfully I know better, from experience with our rehab vet as well as working in a clinic. We both shuddered to think of what a "regular" person might let happen, unknowingly, to a recovering dog.

The specialist we saw for the surgery was amazing, she's a highly recommended surgeon but... she told me nothing about what to do from weeks 2 until 6 when Bailey's then supposed to be "recovered."

I find the same happens in many other situations and I wonder why vets have such an issue referring to a specialist, or maybe it's something different than that and we couldn't think of it!
