Hi Jo , our beloved dog died two weeks ago of pancreatitis. we now know through medical research this condition must be treated immediately human or animal.this was not done so and our dog died after two and half days and five visits to the practice
Hi Jo,no other vet is involved,our dog was seen by three vets from the same practice during the five days .the RCVS web clearly states what treatment should have been administerd
Hi Jo, with respect my question was were do we stand if we refuse to settle the vets bill and what are the issues if we are taken to court for non payment
Hi Jo, thank you for your reply,in reality medical proof is difficult we only have the research knowledge of what treatment SHOULD have been given,i.e no solid food in order for the inflammation in the pancreas to subside which takes 3/4 days and the dog should have been admitted and placed on an intravenous drip. None of this was undertaken, he was left to deteriorate in their care and when they realised how ill he was the treatment then given was too late. Finance is not an issue here we just want justice. If this issue went to court what table of costs are likely to be incurred, please? Also, how might we have obtained proof should this be available to us?
