No single event in a beloved pet's life is as heart-wrenching as a guardian's decision to humanely end it. When that moment is tainted by suspected veterinary negligence or incompetence, it becomes unbearable.
Veterinary victim Barbara Albright of New Hampshire took her eyewitness account of her beloved Scottish Terrier Pocket's inhumane euthanasia, along with some interesting public record information she located, straight to her lawyer – and to the Internet. Refusing to bow down to the vet's counterclaim for defamation and attendant legal demands, her suit settled last year. She bravely continues to write and blog about a variety of subjects, including Pocket's case, no matter what is thrown at her. One of her recent posts, March 17, 2012, addresses the most recent threat from vet John M. MacGregor's lawyer, to which Barbara replied with documents she received as a result of a FOIA request.
