Daughter with signs of early puberty

My daughter is 8 1/2 years old. She started having strong BO at 7 yrs old. Now she is developing hair under her arms and alittle in her pubic region. She saw an endocrinologist who said its ok and theirs nothing she can do right now. My daughters bone age was a year ahead!  The doctor didn't order any blood tests. Should I seek a second opinion?  I'm confused that a blood test wasn't ordered. My husband and I didn't start until 13 years old. Both our if our brothers were late bloomers too. I'm scared because she is too young to start puberty. Any suggestions would help.

My children are earlier bloomers as I was. The hormones in food now days have pushed our children's biological start dates ahead of us when we were younger. It's nothing to be afraid of or even worry touch over. The doctor should have explained this. Growth hormones are in just about every piece of meat we eat.
