The family should speak with a local attorney handling medical malpractice matters. [I litigate cases. Anything posted here must not be construed as legal advice, nor as grounds for forming an attorney-client relationship. You should seek an attorney for formal legal advice and representation.]
The procedure was a heart valve clip. They misplaced the clip. Then, which is rare, they attempted to place a second clip, it failed. Now the heart has irreparable damage.

If you get another similarly athletic dog, get a taller fence. Once your dog jumps your fence and is unsupervised, it is a menace to pedestrians, neighbors, children and other dogs who are lawfully on their own property, or using the sidewalks. You can and will be sued for any harm it causes, and... Read more »
