Thanks for your patience while I typed up my response.

Again, I'm so sorry to hear this happened.

Unfrotunately I don't have the best news for you -- the problem here is the report from the vet, he didn't say that there was any recent injury cause, but rather that there seems to be some preexisting condition.

In order to sue the groomer for injury to your dog, you would have to be able to prove causation.

I understand that your dog was fine before he went in, and not fine when he came out -- but in a lawsuit you would need evidence in order to win a judgment against the groomer, and the vet has reported that there wasn't any injury.

I'm sorry to not have better news for you, but unfortunately that leaves you without much legal recourse.

You could consider getting a second opinion from another vet, that may change things.

I hope that helps!

Please let me know if you have any other questions. Also, please take a moment to rate me using the stars at the top of the page, as it's the only way experts are compensated for our time on the site. I do not receive a salary here at JustAnswer, and am only compensated for my time after receiving a rating of 3 stars or more (5 stars are always appreciated). The question won't close after rating, so you can still ask follow-up questions after. Thanks, ***** ***** it!
