    I figured as much, and did you read they already cremated him before they got back... how convenient!!!

    Yes. That was a bunch of crap. No reason that they should have done that without consent. Makes it seem like they are hiding something.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    Dogs are thought of as possessions in court-not as family. You can't get pain and suffering,although there is ALOT of that with the loss. If they did not have permission to cremate,they should have kept him in the freezer. Cremating sure rules out a necropsy. Years ago I had a terrible experience when a substitute vet(my regular was away) overdosed my dog with meds and killed her. She was my child,and you can just imagine the pain involved. These poor people must be devistated. Bet that won't be on the show.

    If I heard correctly, the owners fed the dogs Saturday morning just before they took them in. They were scheduled to be neutered on the Monday. For some reason Zeus was operated on on the Saturday two hours after being dropped off and then the vet had the nerve to ask the owners if they wanted them to go ahead with the other dog! Can you imagine? A family member went and picked the second dog up. Add to the fact they cremated Zeus when the family said they did not give permission and it all smells very fishy to me.

    I for one would not be taking any of my pets there!

    Sh** that wouldn't work over here. A house is a property not a life that eats, breaths, saves lives and part of your family. Should start telling the cities to pay for the vet bills if dogs are properties. Very convenient, they go after you if your dog does something wrong and sues you but you cant sue or do much if they killed your dog.

    This is truly a sad situation. I feel awful for the owners and the bully who lost his life due to what appears to be a misunderstanding...GROSS NEGLIGENCE. There's no way a Vet would operate on a Bulldog or any other small animal that had recently ingested food or liquid. That's a huge NO NO!
    The mix-up ended up costting the life of this Bully. If the owners do indeed have proof that their pup was scheduled to have surgery 2 days later then this is an open and shut case. If this goes to court the owners will be awarded a monetary value equal to what they paid for their Bulldog or a value will be agreed upon and awarded.

    However, the vet/vet practice has likely engaged in collusion in an attempt to destroy evidence by cremating the dog. The destruction of that evidence without the consent of the owners is obstruction and IMO, A CRIMINAL ACT,! Not sure if a city prosecutor will view this scenario as I would but it's obvious to me that the Vet practice has tried their best to cover their respective butt here. I would be surprised if they had not been coached [to destroy evidence]by a lawyer.

    If I were in the owner's position, and given the actions of the Vet(defendant), I'd pursue punitive damages based simply on the fact that their dog was cremated without prior consent...in an attempt to destroy evidence!

    Sad sad sad. I hope the owners of this Bulldog ream the Vet a new one...or two!
