PLEASE HELP! Ear Crop - Veterinarian Malpractice/Negligence Lawsuit/Standard Of Care

Can anybody help me? I am looking for a Veterinarian that will review my Vet records from the Ear Crop Vet, Emergency Clinic & Pathology Report.

I have had several dogs with cropped ears but never one that died 7 days later from getting ears cropped. I will go into detail if there is someone that can really provide help in finding a vet to review records. I have done a lot of research and have a very strong case and just need an expert witness. I am willing to pay a vet for a consultation just to review my records in regards to the standard of care and record keeping being the cause of death of my pup. There are a lot of details pertaining to cause of death. Here is a brief summary of what happened. I just recently had one my pups ears cropped on Sept. 22nd. On Sept. 26th I brought pup back into vet in regards to ear smelling infected. On Sept. 28th I had to rush pup to 24 hr. emergency clinic. On the evening of Sept. 29th pup passed away. I have already confirmed with Pathologists that it was not congenital and the cause of death was Sepsis.

I am having a very difficult time trying to get a vet to review my records in regards to "Standard Of Care" & "Record Keeping". As stated above, I have done a lot of research and now just taking the steps needed to proceed with filling lawsuit with my Attorney. As some of you might know, it is very difficult to get a vet to go against another vet because they are like a brotherhood. So if anybody can seriously help me It would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Sorry to hear that this happened but usually a vet or any doctor protect themselves from these type of lawsuits by having you sign a legal paper before the surgery. I personally do not know of any vet that could help. Hopefully, others will be of more help.

It sounds like you need a lawyer and you'd have to take it up with the AVMA (American Veterinary Medical Association).
Another vet won't touch it because (has nothing to do with brotherhood) they weren't there. They can not prove what happened at the hospital or in your home. All vets practice medicine differently too.

I don't know your case and haven't 'read' anything. I am just going by what you wrote in the post.

Did you receive and sign a paper for aftercare?

Also, did you give the medicine exactly and on a timely manner? Clean the ears as stated in your consult (thinking you received a consult?) You'd have to prove that you did every thing correctly and you'd have to prove neglect on the veterinarians part. Very hard to do since the dog was in your care for the past 7 days. What did the ears look like when you left the hospital? When do you feel the pup started to get sick? Did you call the vet right away? What did the vet recommend to do? You'll have to answer these questions factually and not opinion-ally.

I am assuming the body has been disposed of, so a necropsy can not be done to help your case. And a case like this can take years and is costly. You may not win in the end.

Unfortunately, we all know that during, and after surgery, comes with risk. Sepsis can happen and it is due to infection/inflammation in the blood.

I am sorry for your loss and I wish you well.
