Im sure my 3yo has an infection of the cancaneal bursa. The vets stitched a cut to the point of his hock about 3 weeks ago, removed the stitches and after 3-days the scar broke down and started to leak a sticky yellow fluid (doesnt smell). Vets came back and scraped the wound edges to make them bleed, re-bandaged and gave more antibiotics.. Has anyone had something similar?

i would check with your vet about this as yellow fluid can come from a number of sources including the joints or skin cells. It doesnt necessarily indicate infection.
