Miniature Schnauzer 12yrs of age, 2 yrs previous surgery to remove stones.
Will not repeat surgery again, special wet food diet 2yrs, stones came back.
The vet is giving pain medicine anti inflammatory, called it palliative care.
Wants us to come back and do a blood panel.

We are balancing comfort with cost, and would put her to sleep rather then suffer.

How long can a dog take pain medicine? Stones are in the bladder, we are choosing no surgery, as it would just continue this cycle.
I asked questions, but didn’t get a direct answer. Unsure if keeping her on pain medicine is the best option, if she will just get worse. Or is that common.

Just looking for wisdom, and what to expect.
? Thank you
