I was really pleased with my visit for my 14 year old dog. The veterinarian I saw that day recommended a conservative treatment plan, which I appreciated cost wise and also considering my dog's age. She did recommend some blood work and other age specific routine testing. But when I told her I really couldn't afford that right now, she accepted that and didn't pressure me into expensive tests on an elderly dog I didn't feel were necessary. I was very relieved and thankful.
