The Vet, Athritis, and what to do next!
Madison, my 9 year old shih tzu was recently taken to the vet because she had a noticeable limp. The vet said that not only did they need to take x-rays, but they also would have to take out some of her teeth.
At the end of everything, the vet visit cost $2500 because they extracted four more teeth. As well, they diagnosed her with arthritis. Unfortunately my father was the one who took her to the vet and I can't offer more than these pictures of her x-rays.
I'm feeling like yes, my poor pup has arthritis, but could that truly be the reason why she is limping?
What are everyone's thoughts?
