Generally that swelling is par for the course but I hope someone who knows more will chime in.

I know the surgeon was specific about not wanting ANY swelling for Bailey's leg but hers was a very different situation. Can you send the picture to your vet?

What meds is she on? This was on Thursday night right, from your other thread? I think if she was my dog I would probably bring her in for a quick recheck or like Springer said, see if you can send the vet pictures.

cephalexin 250mg every 12 hours
rimadyl 75mg 1/2 tab 12 hrs
My daughter in law is going to take the babies to her sister in the morning. IF it looks like it does now and doens't seem to have gone down any I may be going for a second opinion. This place says "you need to have an appt." EVen just to look see for 2 seconds and tell me if it is ok or not. I am just not use to that and since they did the surgery I would think they would say bring her right in if it was swelling..anyway this isn't even the vet that did the surgery and I don't know this man, and he took two seconds to cut the bandage, and put a bitty bit of tape on top. It didn't make me feel secure that it was ok. I know I am a grand worrier. I just would have felt a lot better if he had rewrapped the splint and looked at the wound. Zoom suggested she kept it elevated..so we are doing this..she looks happy but it isnt' a smile. She has unhappy ears when she sits up and blinks her code to me. She's being very good about not licking it.

I'd call and ask if you should be worried about swelling. I wouldn't be terribly worried, especially if she is due to go in Thursday anyway. When I had my cast, I know I had some swelling going on due to it.

I just don't want the bandage to be too tight and have it interfere with circulation. That's my concern. I don't know if it's like when you have been on your feet too long and you take your shoes off and then your feet swell. Just seems odd that it would swell now.

How is Pepper's foot this morning? I wish they would have told you if swelling is normal or not. I'm a worrier too. I don't want there to be an infection of any kind.

I'm sure she will be ok. Let us know how it goes.
