My Mother’s 15 year old toy poodle (Bobo) had a non-healing front leg fracture which they decided to have amputated. 3 days after surgery she had to take Bobo in for excessive drainage. Another surgery was performed to remove dead tissue, fix stitches and put 7 drains in. Bobo was never given prophylactic or therapeutic antibiotics , nor any drains placed when the amputation was performed.
Is this standard practice or was the vet negligent? My mother now has a $1200.00 bill for the 2nd surgery and hospital stay.
