Thank you for using Just Answer. I am a licensed attorney and look forward to helping you. I am reviewing your question and will reply back shortly.
Can you provide some more information please, so I can assist you? What would you like to know about your dog?
Thank you for your reply and additional information. I'm sorry about your dog - I certainly hope they're doing better now.You could certainly sue them for damages, such as the cost of additional treatment for your pet to get them better, boarding costs incurred, and so forth. I'm not sure what that has run you thus far, but if it's $5,000 or less, in Florida you could actually file in small claims court (lower filing fee and cases tend to be heard more quickly).The problem I foresee with your case is that you will have the burden of establishing that the multiple vaccinations is what caused your dog's liver enzymes to get so high. I don't doubt your knowledge in the field and what you are telling me about the studies done -however, that is not conclusive proof that this is what caused your pet's liver enzymes to be so high in your case. For that, you would need other evidence, such as the testimony of another veterinarian who can opine that the dog should not have been given so many vaccinations at one time and that in their medical opinion, this is what caused the the high enzyme count.The cost of that may be prohibitive -e.g., you may spend more getting another vet to check your dog out and pay for their opinion that it would negate any potential recovery.Please kindly remember to leave a positive rating for me by clicking on the stars at the top of the page, as that is the only way I am paid for my time, even though you may have already paid a deposit to the site.
