Now I feel I made a mistake, and that I should have insisted more test to be run. Did I end my beloved dogs life before time?

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about your dog?

Did you read all that I wrote? I feel my dog did not get the care she needed, and that she was put down to soon.
