...waived over $2700.00 in medical fees and offered $350.00 to replace the dog. This isn't a perfect world and sh*t happens everyday.
Let me sxplain something to you. The NCSU School of Veterinary Medicine is one of the finest in the country. They take on cases of sick animals that "General Vets" are unable, unprepared for and unqualified to handle. Neurological surgeries (spinal), special hip sugeries, skin problems, eye problems, diabetes, cancer treatments, etc. A mistake happened here, likely by an unqualified technician which is very unfortunate, but not at all common. I have had no less than three animals treated at the vet school with outstanding results that even dumbfounded my regular vet. They even arranged a payment schedule to help diffray the costs. With all of the work they performed on my animals, they NEVER, EVER offered any sort of guarantee, warranty or any sort of PROMISE of effective treatment results. The results were ALWAYS better than their prognostication.
The loss of a pet is an extremely emotional experience and in my opinion the worst part of pet ownership. I definitely have understanding and sympathy for the owners, but they need to put this to rest, go get another dog and move on with life! Nobody at the NCSU vet school intentionally did anything to hurt anyone. MOVE ON and get over it!
