Longmont, CO asked in Uncategorized for Virginia

Q: test question this is just a test to see if the account is working?

My questions don't seem to be posting. I would like to sue my veterinarian for spay surgery performed on my canine in 2008 but had a question about the statute of limitations in Virginia. After the surgery was performed my dog showed signs of heat as if she had never been spay. This continued for several years and finally I decided to pay for a specialist to perform experimental surgery and research the issue further. The findings of surgery showed that almost the entire uterus and part of both ovaries still remained, they were covered in cysts. This was the cause of the heat like symptoms she was having. I filed a complaint with the VA dept of health professionals and they performed an investigation. The result of this investigation (2016) found the vet responsible, she was reprimanded, and fined 500 dollars. Is it too late take her to small claims court? what do you recommend? The surgery resulted in charges of almost 4k.
