Hello: This isCustomer Welcome to JustAnswer! I am reviewing your post, and I will post my response very shortly. Thank you for your patience.

I am sorry to read about your difficulties. I am relieved that your dog is doing much better.

Regrettably, you may be responsible for the vet bills. However, if you are alleging that the dog got ill because of being under the care of the County, you can make a demand to the County to pay for the vet bills and see what the County says about your demand. If the County refuses to pay or ignores your demand, you can file a Small Claim against the County and let the Court decide who is responsible for the bills.

Goodluck with your case,
