My 8 year old Boxer mix dog is have major nasal discharge constantly. I called the vets office for a cost estimate before making an appointment. They said $185 for blood work and $375 for X-rays, the $375 includes sedation. This is where they recommend we start to diagnose the problem. Are x-rays even necessary for this type of problem? I love my dog very much but money is tight and i want to make sure i am going in the right direction or should i look for another vet?
