      Dear Pat.
      Digoxin help the heart to beat more efficiently therefore a blood test will
      tell her levels and if the are not in a therapeutic level then medication
      adjustment is necessary. I know Midas doesn't really like blood tests, but
      really who of us humans do either. Only you know how much you are willing to
      put Princess through. No one should judge you if you chose not too, but I am
      a nurse and I wanted to let you know from a medically oriented person why
      the vet suggest this. I hope this little note has been a help.
      Bev
