    kaitlyn8298 :  in my opinión Boxers are delicate. Of course we are overly cautious, but if we were talking about a baby not one person would tell you to not to do the test .

    so far my boxer has suffered from kennel cough and one time of unexplained digestive problems that got better after 10 days of antibiotics and food for his sensitivity.

    But I get your concerns and obviously you have a reason to get the test as you have a time limit to get a refund.

    My dog is also a breed that is high risk for tons of health issues and I totally get the financial commitment that I signed up for when I got her.

    Very happy to hear your updates (about your fiance coming around about training Cookie AND you finding a cheaper vet for the echocardiogram.) Vet prices can vary tremendously for the exact same procedure; it’s so important to shop around. I got sick of getting very disparate quotes from vets so I finally got the Banfield plan from Petsmart. It’s a prepaid plan, and I am pretty sure their senior cat plan included heart monitoring tests. Pet insurance is a rip off from my experience. Best of luck!
