The vet said nothing about my dog needing surgery for his Tracheal collapse, Marty does needs surgery for his knees as they keep popping out of joint , I was told this is common with small white dogs. You should try getting a second opinion from a vet at another office. I wonder about vets something, I had one vet say my last dog had a heart murmur and that he needed a x ray and surgery right away, my dog was a hearing dog , any dogs that any health issues are not trained to be working dogs. I asked 3 other vets about my dog heart and they said it was fine.
