In a product liability claim for failure to warn, which is what you are claiming here, you have to prove that the notice was inadequate and upon proving this then you would be entitled to the actual damages you have incurred for the damage to your property as a result of using their product. Dogs are considered property, so this would be no different than if you used the product on your floor and it damaged your floor, the actual damages you incurred would be all that is recoverable. You have a claim and since they did give a warning you would have to argue the warning was inadequate because the warning was not visible and placed in a place that was not conspicuous to the user combined with the fact it was sold in an eye care section. If they do not settle you would have to sue the manufacturer of the product as well as the store for placing the product in a section for eye care products.
