Customer Question

Help! Received yr responses already to our end stage golden, Jr. but now the sticky part. Father wants dog put down yesterday; 32-yr. old son (actual owner) wants non-invasive trmt w wait and see/not ready yet approach; vet wants ongoing, episodic trmt
(IV fluids, meds + overnite observations) and I'm the ex-wife, mother, currently residing 24-hr dog caregiver w nursing background advocating only palliative care. Currently, all under same roof (not usual). Survival of father/son relationship > important
than my opinion, but hard to sit back watch this animal suffer. How to / should I steer conversation toward consensus or maybe you can be "second opinion"? Is there some ethical consideration re going behind treating vet's back in on-line capacity?
