HelloThis is Samuel. I am very sorry to hear of your loss of your pet. Please note that I do not participate in phone calls offered by this site and so I will respond here. Thanks for your patience while I type the information.Was the other dog on a leash? Was your dog on a leash?
Thank you. Yes, you can sue for the amount of the medical expenses, and also I suggest you consider suing for punitive damages since the other dog was not on a leash. That means, the court will consider the value to replace your pet, along with costs to have it chipped, and also it is possible to receive something for your pain and suffering as Texas courts have ruled that way previously.
