Q. my Maltese/poodle died recently from a digestive infection. my vet could not save her w/antibiotics & prednisone. Did we do the right thing?

A. You definitely did the right thing by taking your dog to the veterinarian for treatment. It sounds as though your vet took the right approach to help save your dog. I am sorry for your loss.
