My 6 year old maltese had a bladder stone removed in april. I kept taking him back telling the vet the dog was not improving: couldn't hold his urine. would urine every 10-30 mins. hide under the bed, panting. We made over 10 trips to this vet. Finally I took the dog for a 2nd opinion. This vet did a urine culture (his vet never ordered one). The new vet referred us to a specialist--who did an ultrasound and showed the bladder inflamed and thick at the surgical site. The dog needed ER surgery or die. Had part of his bladder removed. 1st they said it was a rare suture reaction but the pathologist report said it was a STAPH infection. We spent over $5000 to save this dog from the botched surgery. His old vet refuses to pay for the corrective surgery. Injury and Misdiagnosed lawsuit?
