: I took my kitty to the vet for sniffling. He told me it was pneumonia, gave her an antibiotic shot (Convenia), saw her two weeks later to give her a clean bill of health. The sniffling was mostly resolved although she was still sneezing. Two weeks after that, her sniffling returned. I took her to a different vet and radiographs and nasal flushing showed nasal lymphoma. I returned to vet #1 for a copy of the kitty's chart because she needed a CT Scan and discovered he had ruled out pneumonia in the chart. He deliberately lied to me, leading me to believe she had pneumonia and that his antibiotic had resolved it. I want his head on a plate. He was deliberately, maliciously negligent. I can't prove what he told me but the chart speaks for itself. He didn't bother to diagnose a cause for her sniffling. How do I find a vet, retired or currently active, who will review the chart and render an opinion? I've called several people in the area and they won't get involved. The cat is dead now, euthanized because the lymphoma had destroyed her bone tissues during the five precious weeks we lost while he deceived me.

: sorry for your loss, but it will probably be hard to find a lawyer as well since there would be very little monetary damages for a dead kitten

: sorry to hear about your cat. but unfortunately you can't win a suit of this type. courts don't consider a cat the equal of a person, and you can't get a million dollars in damages for the death of a cat like you can for the death of a person. but the costs of bringing a malpractice suit against a vet would be just as high as bringing a malpractice suit against a people doctor. sorry.
