Owner's rights

http://www.cnn.com/2006/LAW/04/29/fa....ap/index.html

This is horrifying... to think a family actually made careful consideration and decided to put a beloved pet down because of a recurring medical problem that obviously wasn't going to be cured. Then, the vetrinarian makes the decision for them without their knowledge let alone their permission, to simply rehome the dog. I love animals and perhaps this dog's death was not immediate as they say it lived a few more months but I still think it was very very wrong on the part of the vetrinarian. It was completely unethical.

And the new owner... not allowing the rightful owners to have their beloved pet back when it was pretty much stolen from them? That's horrible. absolutely horrible, this case makes me disgusted about people who have poor ethics and actually believe they're doing something good. I feel sorry for this family.

You are right, that vet had no right nor no business doing that.

If the facts are as stated in the article, there is no doubt in MY mind that the vet should have his license pulled, and pay some serious damages to that family. That is horrible.

I agree, Bob. I'm hesitant about what I read in stories since there's usually something being left out. I often hope they aren't twisting things. But then the media now adays... still it was just sickening to me. Sure the dog lived a little longer but it isn't right.

I was shocked when I read this story yesterday. I can't imagine making such a hard decision, saying goodbye to your beloved friend, actually WATCHING them "die" and then finding out later that your pet was alive all that time with another family. That's gotta be traumatic. And you know that the vet probably told some sob story to the new owners about how heartless the previous family was.

I agree that it was very very unethical for the vet (and whatever other employees were involved) to do this.

Owned by:
Three kitties (Hank, Napoleon, and The White One), two degus (Jay and Silent Bob), and a new chihuahua puppy (Gidget).


Special Pets in Heaven:
Bogus (cat), Dixie (dog), The Orange One (cat), baby iguana, and Charlotte (dog). I miss you all so much.
