Hi! My name is***** a solicitor in Australia, and I’m happy to help you.

I am sorry to hear the passing of your lovely dog. Do you think the medication was wrong that was given to the dog?
Customer
She wasn't given her medication when we took to the vet on Wednesday.

Thank you for your follow-up. So you are saying that the vet failed to follow proper procedure with the medicine, is that correct?

Customer
It was in her file to give us 7days worth but we weren't given them n she died 3days later due no fit medication
Customer
Sorry I'd prefer to text

As the veterinary failed with their handling of the matter, you could sue for negligence. This issue you take into the magistrates Court.

I hope this message finds you are well.

Just recapping your circumstance, as the vet has failed to protect the animal, you can sue for compensation in the court.
