My above opinion was based on the fact that the last dog I helped (Dobie Max)had kidney failure and who would know - he was a stray? I feel the vet should of advised me it would be better in this instance to get the blood work done as his age was also questionable. He never should of had to endure the surgery nor should he of died so tragically and painfully - 2 days later. This was a very painful lesson.
