My dog was bitten- can I claim vet costs?
15 replies 622 views
My daughter was walking our small dog on a lead in Scotland when he was attacked by 3 large off lead dogs. His harness had a thick padded collar which saved his life. Overnight stay in vet hospital, surgery to stitch deep bites and chest drains inserted. I found the owner who apologised and said he would pay. I gave him vet report and invoice from vet but have heard nothing. The police are going to speak to him. I said I wanted his dogs muzzled and for him to pay bill which is not far off £1000. The guy is still letting them off lead. Can I make a claim for costs and how do I go about this? Thanks
