My dog had surgery 9 days ago for a broken knee. A week after surgery there is a large swelling on the site of the incision and in his foot on the same leg . Is it broken again do you think it feels spongy like it’s full of fluid . Thanks in advance for any advice

Good morning? Sorry about your pup. I would definitely get back into the vet right away. They performed the surgery and know what they want the healing process to look like. It may just be swelling due to the surgery, but it might be onset of infection. If your pet is running any sort of temp or the site is painful or warm, then I would get into the vet today and not wait for the follow up exam. Best of luck on a speedy recovery!??
