All in the Family


Labrador Retriever

CAUTION!!! My sweet Lily passed away July 23, 2009. She was only 1 1/2 years old. We would be 2 years old December 19, 2009. Lily blew her knee at the dog park playing with another dog. Took her to the vet...she had to have surgery to repair her torn ligament. I did my research and got a few opinions. I was told by the vets that it would be a simple surgery an hour in a half tops. It is common or dogs to blow their knees playing/running. After stressing for a month on what to do I finally took her to the vet to have surgery. She died after surgery due to a blood clot to the brain. I tried to sue the vet but her medical records didn't show any negligence and I can't hold the vet accountable. Unfortunately, dogs are not seen as a member of the family in court...they are seen as property. So taking the vet to small claims court will cost me more money than I will ever receive. Besides no money can replace my sweet girl or make me feel better. I'm so devastated. I lost my sweet chocolate puppy and I can't punish the vet. If your dog needs to have leg, knee or hip surgery, please make sure you ask your vet what the risks are...if I had known that there was a risk that she would die, I would never have taken her.
