Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
HiI am glad to hear your dog is doing well now.Please tell me what the terms were while at the kennel regarding treatment while boarding? Was it specified that if something occurred you would be notified and permission would be sought for any treatment?
HiIt appears it was taken for granted that Morris knew the proper dosage. And the vet should have made sure they understood what that was. It appears negligent on the Vet's part.I suggest you can tell your Vet you are not going to pay and they can sue you. If they sue you, then you will need to work with a local attorney to get the case law necessary to support that they were negligent and therefore should not be issuing the bill.If you have further questions, you may post them here and I will continue to assist. Otherwise, even if you have a JA Subscription, Please ACCEPT my answer as that is the only way I get credit for my time and information. Thank you
