My vet did not do any blood tests on my bichone for 3 yrs.

Customer Question

my vet did not do any blood tests on my bichone for 3 yrs. We had spoke of drining a lot and asked about diabetes and general lethargy.
Anther vet (allergist) did a routine blood test and my dog has been diagnosed with kindey disease and given 6 to 24 months to live. She is 12 years old. We believe the care by our vet was not up to professional standards and are thinking of filing a complaint with the vet board in our state. Can you give us some insight into this?
