Default Second Opinion Question?

*mods feel free to move, dont know where to put this*

I have a question, do you think a vet gets offended when you get a second opinion? Has anyone ever gotten a second opinion on something but stuck with your vet?

We have used the same vet for awhile and overall I really like the place and have no issues.

However, ever since I got Chloe pretty much I have felt like something is wrong with her kidneys... she pees A LOT and it is very dilute... she has had urinalysis done at the vet and they agree her specific gravity is about as close to water as you can get but they dont think anything is wrong and dont really want to pursue anything else. On the other hand I am a basket case and want something done NOW, lol.

I recently got a second opinion but it was from a cousin who doesnt live near me... so now I need to call my vet and tell him to run these tests that the "second opinion" said to run.

Do you think the vet will be offended? or are they used to this sort of thing?

I really dont like confrontation, haha... but obviously Chloe's health has to trump my lack of confrontation skills, right?
