    Greetings everyone! fantastic forum!
    I’d like to ask for some opinions as I am a student tight on a budget. Ok so I decided to bring my 18 year old cat (had him my whole life) to the vet for a check up and he palpated him and found a lump in the lower abdominal area. His recommendation was to take a blood test and see if hes healthy enough to cut open and physically see the lump because Xrays is not a good method to distinguish what the lump is.
    I can’t help but feel he just wants the most expensive procedure and its tough for a student.
    Also to cut open an older cat… isn’t it bad for the body to be exposed to oxygen? especially when ‘just to check’.
    Anyways I’m wondering if I should trust this vet because hes recommending the right way, or just do an Xray and ‘possibly’ never find out what the lump is, or just find another vet.

    All opinions are greatly appreciated!!
