Many thanks for your patience, it is appreciated. I am now pleased to be able to provide further assistance with your query. First of all, I am sorry to hear about the issues brought up by this. It must be a frustrating situation to be going through.
The main issue in the circumstances is that pets are treated in the same way as inanimate objects on law so you cannot sue for persona injury to them, and you also cannot really claim for emotional distress related to how they were treated. You can only claim for damages/losses caused by the vet’s actions, which would mean the costs of the unnecessary work (which they are not charging you for anyway); any additional fees which may be needed to put things right (that is unknown yet as you simply do not know if there will be any adverse effects from this which may incur further fees); and worst-case, the value of the dog in the event it dies or needs to be put to sleep as a result of this.
You can still lodge a complaint about the vet with their regulatory body but that won’t get you any compensation, it will just potentially result in further action being taken against the vet, such as a fine or other penalty.
If further costs end up being incurred and the vet is not willing to cover these, that is where you can seek potential compensation. If a party wishes to pursue another for financial compensation arising out of a dispute between them, they can potentially do so by making a court claim. However, as legal action should only be used as a last resort, there are certain steps that should be taken initially to try and resolve this matter informally and without the need to involve the courts. It is therefore recommended that the following steps are taken in order to try and resolve this:
