Thank you Dr Peter. My husband and I have discussed whether we wish to stress Rum by taking him to the vet surgery. Indeed with having tests done will it improve his overall life expectancy. He does not appear to be in discomfort and has a great deal of love and comfortable living with us his brother Coke and our childrens dogs. I suppose I am just worried that we have left it too late for our vet to actually do very much for him. I am assuming that if he was in pain he would indicate so?
