  3. Hi All I hope that you can give me some advice as I am not sure what has happened to me today is legal. I had to have the vet out to my horse last year and had to pay 500 in advance for his treament and then the rest on account. I had every intention of paying. The debt was in my married name (I have since reverted back to my maiden name) at an old address. My horse was treated however the vet made several mistakes (such as not adminstering him antibiotics which resulted in cellulitus) I disputed the amount at the time. The vet said they would redu
  4. Hi I had to have my animal treated back in 2008 - 2009 for mites (it was a horse) shortly after that my husband and I suffered serious financial difficulties and ended up on an IVA. I never had a bill from the vets, but I did advise them of our situation. I have just had an email from them saying the bill is outstanding and they want paying for it. they said they had not been able to contact us, but we have not moved and not changed any telephone numbers - bearing in mind this is now 8 to 9 years ago, where do I stand?
  5. Hi All, A friend of ours is in a huge amount of debt from her marriage, where her husband built up this debt, cheated on her and was also very abusive. Our friend had no choice but to go into a refuge with their 2yr old son. Whilst in the refuge, her husband didn't give her dog the medication that it needed and it became ill. the husband took the dog to the vets in the morning, but the vet put the dog to sleep in the afternoon. The dog belonged solely to our friend, not the husband. The vet did not call our friend on her mobile phone to speak with, as the dog's owner), they were hap
  6. Hi all Can anyone recommend a good solicitor who specialises in vet negligence claims? Thanks Foxy
  7. Last week we took our cat Oscar to the vet after he came in limping and in serious pain we think he may have been hit by a vehicle. The vet which we have been before with our other cat said he would have to stay in and have Xrays buit there would be no one there out of office hours and he would be on his own, but it wasnt reccomended to transport him anywhere. The day after the Xrays were done the vet called my partner and said his leg was broken in 7 places and would cost £1000's to repair after a discussion with my partner we decided the only fair thing to do was to put hi

  9. My cat died at the hands of a vet . The vet refuses to give me copies of the x rays even though I offered to pay for the copies. Does anyone know what to do to get these?
  10. I am looking for clarification on Law regarding Vet referrals. As I am sure a lot of us have learned over the years, Vets can be rip off merchants, incompetent, abusive, use rough handling of our furry family members etc. These days, I find I no longer have a main Vet but try to use the best of each Vets speciality. For example I follow the nutrition advice of one Vet. If I needed neutering surgery I would go to another, in an emergency I woukd be forced to another and so on. Sometimes though, for diplomacy, I think its better to just go to a new Vet with a fresh start. If
  11. Hi I have a 11 month old female beagle puppy, I noticed her front legs bowed slightly and asked my vet about it, who just said she might be a beagle cross which could explain the front legs looking odd. She then starting limping about a month ago and I noticed her right foot was twisting when she walked!! My vet said she must have sprained her leg, I questioned the bowed legs again and was dismissed with pain relief and told to come back in a week or so if she's still limping!! He noted that her leg was deformed but didn't seem bothered! I went back after a week and
  12. Hi all We are in the middle of an outstanding account wrangle with our vets... The injury(s) in question was fully covered by our PetPlan cover and dates back some time BUT... One of the excess payments I made in cash - that never made it onto their system - they are saying I still owe it and they won't even entertain the notion that it wasn't entered, or worse someone pocketed the cash. One of the Lab Fees was processed 2 months after the last appointment for that particular illness, which meant the subsequent claim for this was in a new policy year, and was subject to a n
  13. Hi I'm looking for some advice regarding our vets. A few weeks ago we took Toby our black Labrador to the vets as he was having trouble peeing. He was then booked in for sedation and X-rays. The bladder X-Ray came back clear but upon xraying his stomach 2 golf balls were located in his stomach. We were referred to another vet for the surgery. We were told that we were looking at a cost of around £1300 for them to be removed. My husband took him to the vets and he spoke to the vet who said they were going to do an endoscopy to remove them but if they couldn't they would
  14. Hi, any advice on this would be greatly appreciated, bit of a long story but here we go.. My girlfriends dog had a bad leg so we took him to the vets, suspected cruciate ligament damage so booked him in for an x-ray, we were advised if it was cruciate then costs could be £2k ish, only verbally by a lady who worked in the vets. She has insurance so we checked and insurance covered first £1500 of a cruciate so were expecting £500ish bill. The dog went in for his xray, they operated there and then he stayed overnight and came home the next day with a buster collar on and leg stitched up. W
  15. My dog has been taking tablets for 5 years now and the vet still insists on me taking her to the surgery every 3 months for a checkup. Surely if the tablets were going to cause any problems this would have shown up ages ago. Can the vet refuse to give me another 3 months supply if we do not attend the surgery? (My dog is now getting old, she is 17, and cannot walk that far, although she is generally well and enjoys her food, potters around the garden etc. I have no transport to take her so, after 5 years, is it still essential that I have to find a way to get her do
  16. Here goes: I bought a cavachon puppy off a registered breeder online a week ago, the breeder seemed very genuine, we had lots of phone conversations etc.. anyway, i picked up the pup from the breeders house along with some other bits for the pup including paperwork. When i got the pup it had already had its first vaccination and been checked over by a vet, when i took the pup to have its 2nd vaccination 2 days ago my vet told me my pup has a grade 5 and close to grade 6 heart murmur now grade 6 is the worst it gets! and my puppy unfortunately wont live very long my vet also advised it s
  17. I have a 13 year old crossbread who I love dearly. on the outer ankle area of his left front leg he has what looks to me like an injury which has become infected. We took him to the vets yesterday, not had to bother taking him to the vets much as he is a really healthy dog so dont really have a relationship with a vet as such and I am quite upset and concerned by her diagnosis. Upon looking at the wound, which to be fair is quite grotesque, she immediately said that it is a huge mass and a tumour and needs to be surgically removed and that is what the foul smell coming from him was.
  18. Leaving my mums 5 month old puppy, Millie, a Maltese Terrier, at the vets to be spade, the nurse went through the permissions list, asking if I wanted to allow them to cut her toe nails, to which I said 'no' and did I want her returned with a neck collar, to which I said 'no'. When my mum collected Millie, she was 'horrified' to see that her female parts were not the only thing the vet had removed! The vet had cut off all her facial hair up to her forehead including her eyelashes and also cutting off her under chin beard hair! My mother immediately complained to the nurse and 2
  19. Just after some advice please. My vet bill was issued in late Sept and there was a discrepancy over the amount. It was amended and a new bill sent out whilst i was on holiday. When I got back it was lost in all the holiday post. Eventually (mid-Nov) my wife found it and sent a cheque (£71) from work via business post - usually arrives next working day. Now, my dog fell ill yesterday and I need a vet to see her so I called and they claim that my account has been passed to a DCA and there is nothing they can do! I called my bank and they said the cheque has not been processed and 'stopped'
