My friend is out of the country for a month and is boarding his dog at a kennel. He listed me as the emergency contact in case the dog gets sick. Today I got a voicemail from them saying "we noticed she's been drinking a lot of water." They asked if I wanted to authorize bloodwork and urine testing. The factors I'm considering: 1.This dog is 14 years old and my friend told me to have her put down if anything serious happens. 2.The people who run the kennel are also the dog's veterinarians. This makes me wonder if they're trying to take advantage of my position. 3.How can you tell that a dog is drinking too much water on a hot summer afternoon? I'm not at all familiar with dogs or canine health, but my gut says that the dog is fine. Any inputs?
