Veterinary Malpractice

Veterinary Malpractice

There are several factors to be proven under a traditional malpractice claim to recover damages for injury to an animal under a veterinarian’s care. First, the defendant must be under a duty of care toward the animal in question. Second, the actions or inaction of the veterinarian must have fallen below the professional standard of care, meaning the veterinarian did not act with reasonable skill, diligence, and attention as would ordinarily be expected of other veterinarians in the community. Third, this deviation from the standard of care must have been the cause or proximate cause of the animal’s injury. Finally, the injury or harm resulted in damages to the plaintiff, meaning not just to the animal in question
