We have a dog (a Collie) with a painful left side, and centrally down her spine, she did have Gingivitis which has been cleared up with Antibiotics, and she also has a painful left shoulder and a previous problem with her Larynx. She is 11 yers old and until fairly recently was in good health. She is now on Onsior, Tramadol, and also Gabapentin , all for anxiety/pain relief. She has had X rays at her current Vet and has recently been half heartedly referred to a Neurologist, but the earlient appointment is***** hence we don't know whether to go ahead with this appointment, as the recommended treatment may be expensive. We do not have, and never have had Pet insurance.
Please advise on what you see as the the best course of action, to put the Dog down, or to embark on more expensive treatment for an aging dog with a few and worsening health problems.

Hello again,

If she has suspect spinal pain, then an MRI would be ideal to get to the root of that for her. Especially as you have noted that she is on quite a cocktail of pain relief medications for her to still be sore on. And I have to note that without an MRI we can only speculate on the cause of her signs and cannot realistically determine her prognosis. Therefore, if cost is an issue and treatment after a scan isn't likely to be possible then you may want to see if her drugs can be increased to keep her comfortable. Otherwise, euthanasia would need to be considered for her to prevent her from suffering here.

Kind regards,

Dr. B.
