Veterinary Malpractice Defense

Similar to physicians, veterinarians are licensed medical professionals who are required to provide a standard of care to each and every patient, whether a domestic and/or service animal, show or racehorse, or even livestock. Veterinarians face many of the same issues and risks as medical doctors treating human patients. And as happens when working with people, sometimes things go wrong, resulting in a veterinary malpractice suit being raised. The consequences of a veterinarian malpractice claim can be wide-ranging and may even result in a loss of a veterinary license. Some examples of veterinary malpractice claims include an incorrect diagnosis of an illness or injury; prescribing the incorrect medication or dosage of medication; recommending an inappropriate treatment plan; causing preventable injury and/or a deviation or departure from good and accepted practice.
