MY DOG JUST PAST AWAY FEW MINUTES AGO :/
I am so sorry to hear about your loss. As a dog owner, I feel your pain. Please know that you have the right to be compensated for all of the medical treatment and the amount of money you paid to purchase your dog. Unfortunately, the law does not allow you to receive compensation for the pain and suffering endured over the passing of your dog. This is true even though your dog died in a very cruel and violent manner. You are also not entitled to any kind of punitive damages. You are strictly limited to the costs incurred in providing your dog with medical care and the cost expended in purchasing your dog. You should definitely pursue the matter in small claims court. You are completely in the right and you will prevail in court. Be certain to have all of the documents confirming your expenses; and do not forget to ask the Judge to award you the costs of filing and serving the lawsuit. Please let me know if you have any further questions or need guidance. Best of luck!
