Need Help Finding an Expert Witness for Maltreatment of a Dog in NY
August 28, 2013 11:23 AM Subscribe
I took my dog to the vet clinic for what I thought was a simple spay but she almost died because of maltreatment and negligence. We ended up taking her to emergency and spent almost four thousand dollars. The doctor has refused to take responsibility for her actions. We have decided to sue her and will have our day in court next week. However we need an "expert" witness someone with a medical background that has a lot of experience with dogs to come or our case will not be heard. Hive could you help us find such an individual in NYC? We are willing to pay.

I took my lovely dog Lily to the vet in order to get spayed. The doctor committed negligence and somehow my dog ended up with burns on her body. After we got her back we noticed she was dying and had to take her to an emergency hospital where the bill was higher than $4K. The original vet has refused to take on responsibility for her acts so we are suing her to recoup these funds and to avoid other animals from getting here. She has lawyered up (we haven't) and we are having our day in court soon. The judge will not hear our case unless we have an expert witness but we are having trouble finding someone with such a background in NYC. Could you help us and/or recommend us someone?
We not only want to recoup our costs but also do not want other animals/pet owners to go through the pain we went through.
