Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Hello, my name is***** and I'm so sorry to hear about Charlie's recent diagnosis. I know how hard it is to receive unexpected, awful news about your loved ones. Can you give me a little more information as to how this diagnosis was made?
Ok, thank you. It sounds like your vet used some advanced imaging/equipment and did a thorough work up for Charlie. You must be devastated (again, I'm so sorry).
I think it is never wrong to seek a second opinion. In this case I recommend a specialist opinion, as they will be best suited to discuss your options. I'm happy to help find a board-certified oncologist in your area, if desired.
Hi, how are you and Charlie doing today? I know it takes time to process bad news. Are you still interested in a second opinion for him? Would you like me to help you find another veterinarian (a specialist, if desired) to evaluate Charlie?
