We have a shi tzu dog that has been treated by two animal hospitals and a vet. our vet said to take him to specialist which we did. our dog has a sore on his foot. he has had two surgerys. nothing found. it keeps swelling , bursting open and bleeds. very painful when swelling. speciality vet he cant find anything, antibotics arent working refered him to allergist. no help. feel like they just want our money a few thousand all together from start. feel like our dog is now just a guieney pig. heart broken over this. what can we do?

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

Arizona

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken so far?

None legally. just keep doing what vet says.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

This is our second dog that has been seen by specialty. first dog died from what they said was valley fever. had autopsy done on him. he also had something else wrong he was never diognosed with. id have to look at records, but i think it was meningitis. they have pretty much broke us and no answers.

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
