I guess the part that I'm torn about isn't necessarily the money. It's the fact that Buddy is 10yrs old. From what the vet said there is very little chance that the MRI would actually show something that was operable.
What could the MRI find that would possibly be operable on a 10yr old dog? Approx how much would that operation cost?
It's just hard for me to consider putting him through an operation, especially one that close to the spine. Even with the operation he is still an old dog and probably only has a couple of years left anyways.....
The bottom line is that I don't know what to do....
