I understand, I'm certainly not blaming you for this, it's the vet's responsibility to advise you properly. Hope she's home safe tomorrow!
Please let me know - Lisa has my personal email addy. I used a local lawyer, but had the help of a super guy (sadly no longer alive) who was a well known Keeshond breeder/exhibitor but also a vet, who jumped in to help us vs the vet who we sued. As I said, we did end up settling out of Court (not all judges are aware about things-dog and we were advised to do this if possible) and after all, how do you quantify the loss of 5 puppies (even if they were from a UK Champion imported from Canada and by a visiting Am.Ch male who had long gone back to the States) coupled with the fact that on spaying later on, it was discovered that she'd never had carried another litter to term, so shot was her uterus on one side. One thing I do remember was having to immediately make note of every step of what happened. So you are right, having it documented here should help. It's easy to 'forget' if these things go on for a long period of time.I may need your advice on the legal pursuit if you don't mind, and also soundtracks. The good thing about this thread is that everything has been documented as and when it has happened.
