I believe I have a case related to failure to disclose what was a small probability, but high risk of a specific complication, for a specific medication provided at discharge. No information was given, and in fact I got no written discharge instructions (they couldn't find the form).
During a resulting hospital ICU admission, several very competent veterinary professionals told me the drug is "controversial", and they gave me the "black boxed" medication spec sheet showing warnings I was not told about when my pet was discharged.
Thank you.I left out some important info that I'm hoping may change the prognosis to get some financial relief that would not cost more than the recovery: The vet already paid me for the week long hospitalization, and admitted I was not informed properly on discharge. I was asked to sign a waiver to sue, but never did. Also, this is a $700 purebred animal, although I don't show her. Since payment already implies guilt, what chance is there that I could at least push the vet to settle for paying annual healthcare costs associated with the now chronic disease (labs and other diagnostic tests, special food required, etc) Thank you.
