Maybe you guys here can help with my decision....
I went ahead and scheduled the blood test for Monday morning but now I'm slightly hesitant just because of the price tag. Obviously I want to know for sure what it is but there's always that nagging feeling that it could be something else and it would be wasted money.
What would you do, knowing what I've said about Tego? My biggest concern is his activity level, or lack there of. My vet said that is completely out of the ordinary. He doesn't run and play like a normal puppy. He'll bound around after the big dogs for a couple of minutes then he's done and comes back to lay at my feet and nap. If I throw a ball too far, over 15-20 feet, he'll trot a couple steps and then stop and watch it roll away and come back to me. But when he was on steroids he would bound and pounce after it until he got it.
Also, I think his situation is slightly different in that he's a growing puppy, or at least trying to grow. I can't mark any weight loss because he is developig, albeit slowly. Is there anything else I should look into before making the plunge on the test? He's been checked for worms and dewormed just in case, checked out negative for giardia... and honestly I'm not sure what else would be a possibility.
What would you do? I'm sorry, I just need a sounding board!
