The following site can help you find a different vet and perhaps one that has some orthopedic experience or specializes in radiology and thus would be better able to read the x-rays and make a decision.
Her vet is probably able to diagnose many conditions from x-rays but if they are considering surgery the vet may want an orthopedic surgeon to look over the films before moving forward. A second opinion is a very good idea anyway, so taking the films to another vet would be advised.
