My Service Dog died on September 17, 2015. I believe fowl

My Service Dog died on September 17, 2015. I believe fowl play is involved. He was not sick until two weeks ago, August 30, 2015. He is dead and I am just sick about it. They had diagnosed him with pancreatic cancer. I could never believe the picturesthey were showing were of my Service Dog, Buddy. I believe I was once again set-up. I am just sick with this. I believe the groomer was put up to injecting my dog with cancer. This is possible according to what I have discovered on the Internet. And the groomerhad ample opportunity to do so. She would have me drop him off at 1PM. And, she would not call me until 5PM to pick-up my Service Dog. She also has a friendly relationship with ***** *****, who has been mentioned in my prior unfortunate events. I believe hehad the groomer inject my dog with cancer. I have not cremated my Service Dog, yet. I want to know exactly what was wrong with my dog. They had me euthanize him on Thursday, September 17, 2015. I have just been totally sick. Can you help me find out what reallywas wrong, if anything, with my Service Dog. I had had him for 8 years and 9 months.?

Is it legal for a pet insurance company to require that you

Is it legal for a pet insurance company to require that you file a claim within 90 days of the occurrence, and if it is any longer than that, to deny the claim? I am used to "people" insurance, where you only need to file in the calendar year, but I have a $300 claim from October that I am sure they will deny. Any recourse? (The pet insurance co is Trupanion)

I have an interesting situation. While out of town at a conference,

I have an interesting situation. While out of town at a conference, I hired my neighbor to take care of my dogs. I paid her in advance. Both dogs are housed in a 30 x 30 dog run. The neighbor decided to take the dogs out of the run and put them into another neighbor's horse pasture (chain link - no way for them to get out). She neglected to put the 2 horses in the barn. One of the horses ended up trampling my 1 year old Briard. The incident resulted in a broken front leg. I have paid close to $5000 to date in Vet costs. (Surgery was performed to correct the leg). The owner of the property and the horse where the incident occurred did not have any knowledge of the dogs being placed on her property, and I did not give my consent. The person responsible for the incident does not want to pay any of the vet fees because she feels that I should have had pet insurance. I am debating as to whether or not I should file a claim with my homeowner's insurance. However, since I was out of town at the time of the incident, and it did not happen on my property, I am not sure if they will cover it. I live in Southern California.

Need to retrive the original vet medical records ( pages printed

Need to retrive the original vet medical records ( pages printed from a file sent to me via email) and submitted to a pet insurance company.Pet insurance company will not release them back to me without attorney. Why do I need those particular copies returned?Verification. I am filing a complaint against the vet clinic with the state of Florida Department of Business and Professional Relations. The vetrinary clinic made deletions in the electronic medical file record. I called the state of Florida and was told this is illegal, but I need those original pages I sent to the pet insurance company for comparison.How do I know?A couple weeks later, I went back to print out the complete file, it did not read the same. There was information and data changed from the original form. I believe the owner of the company changed the information. I don't think she realizes that how she sent over the document was not locked--so any changes made on their side would reflect also on the document copy sent to me.

I am trying to have a small kitten flown to me from Virginia

I am trying to have a small kitten flown to me from Virginia to Tennessee from a private owner. My daughter paid $250.00 to fly the cat here. Then they contacted us that they needed an additional $750.00 for pet insurance that will be refunded upon arrival of the kitten to our door. Which we paid. There keeps being delays and delays regarding getting the kitten. The cat was supposed to be delivered at our door today at 12:20 pm but somehow the kitten is now in Columbia, SC and the Pet Aviation stated the cat is sick and they needed and additional $1500.00 to give the cat vaccines and supply an air conditioned crate for flight. I do not have this kind of money. They told me I will be charged with pet abandonment. I told them I am willing to drive to SC and pick the cat up myself. I was told this is not possible. What should I do?

A neighbor offered to display my lawn tractor at his place

A neighbor offered to display my lawn tractor at his place because he leaves along the road. He refused to keep my sign with contact info and price posted on the tractor. He also had it attached to this archaic monstrous leaf vac wanting to sell it as a package deal. I had enough, I told him I wanted the tractor back. He said I owed him. For what? He power washed the tractor. We were also friends so when he told me he did so I figured it was a favor. I wouldn't have even thought of power washing a tractor. I was going to go to his place in the next day or 2 with a bucket of water and a sponge, but he did the pw before I could do that. I'm not paying him for unauthorized work. He is a business person (choke), has no license, but the only thing he was supposed to do, as he offered, was the display the tractor along the roadside. It was not even on his property as he told me it would be. Two doors down where he couldn't even see it from his house. Anyway, told him I wasn't going to pay for something I didn't ask him to do. He immediately ran to the tractor, slamming gears, racing it up a hill of orchard grass and parked it in his backyard and chained it to a tree.State police were called a few days later. Police talked me into playing "the big person" by giving him the $50 he wanted. I'm on disability and I would never consider paying for something as frivolous as pw a friggin lawn tractor. Met this dude the next day with the $50. He wanted me to sign a piece of paper that stated that I DID ask him to pw, etc. I'm not signing something untrue. He got angry and left. Has a motorcycle riding buddy present who is influencing and encouraging him. Want to charge storage fees now. He's trying to cover his ass for his wrong doings with this letter full of lies and me sign it. So now he's livid.Long story short - he in his never-ending rage, KILLED MY CAT, who does go on his property. Guess so. He has cats and he leaves food out. Live in the country. This food attracts wildlife. He's already shot my cat twice, but this time he killed him. For what? Being a cat? It was nothing but for revenge. I want to place a sign on the road with an arrow pointing towards his house that says "pet cat killer lives here". I know, I know, sounds silly and petty, but I have to find a release. My cats are my kids and I wouldn't be alive if it weren't for them. I have no fmaily or friends left and he knows how important they are to me. Can't get me for slander as I would not put a name on it. Left a message for him last night to return my cat's body so I could bury him. I doubt I'll hear back on that.What would be the penalties if caught putting this sign up?I'm already going to court route. This asshole was displaying my tractor for sale as his own before he could be served. I have to move quick for everything.As mentioned, I need a release re: my kitty. Can I place this sign?
