My dog is almost 12. hes a shep/lab mix. the other day he had a seizure. we called the vet right away and the vet called us back and said that the earliest we can bring him in is friday and they will do brain scans, x rays and put him on medications and such. we said we will take the medication to stop the seizures but we arent going to to the brain scan and xrays. i mean hes a very nervous dog, he has high anxiety. and hes almost 12. so even if something does turn up in the xray or brain scan we arent going to put him through surgery at that age, thats alot on a senior dog. my dfs brother said that we are cruel pet owners for not doing everything possible for the dog. am i being realistic or a i being cruel?
