Do you think it is necessary to take action against this hospital for it's negligence?

My two month old Shih Tzu puppy went for a regular checkup to the CGS hospital in Gurgaon and he was a perfectly healthy puppy. The vets used an implement to groom him which made him go into a state of shock and he ultimately died of a cardiac arrest. The hospital took responsibilty for his death and offered another Shih Tzu pup as so called 'compensation'. Do you think it is necessary to take action against this hospital for it's negligence that cost us a member of our family? As a person, I do believe that negligence can be forgiven in several professions but in the medical profession, when there are lives at stake, negligence is simply unforgivable. I also wanted to ask if there is any forum to publicize this story and make people aware of the kind of poor handling done at that hospital so as to prevent other horrible incidents such as this from happening again?

Its really a shame these are proffesionals who are meant to serve the cause and are responsible for such situation and deaths !

Aishwarya, I'm sorry to hear about the sad fate of your doggy. I think it's important to expose such hospitals and I give you a hats off for publishing this in popular sites like this. To be very honest, whether to take action against them is a complete delimma. Taking this matter further will involve time and cost and respecting the state of mind you are in, I don't think it'll bear fruits. The bottom line is our dog won't come back but exposing the hospital will definately enlighten doggy parents about potential risk of loosing pets if left in the hands of these institutes.

I'm not sure what the implement was myself, but it was like a large blower/razor which made a really loud and scary noise, which is why my dog's heartbeat was racing, that's what caused him to go into a state of shock.

I was not notified of the consequences of this implement after they used it. After my dog went into a state of shock they said "One in thousand dogs reacts like this"
The hospital has already fired the groomer and some of the other staff responsible, however the head doctor who was in in charge someone called Dr. Shelly has still not been fired.
She's an idiot, to sum it up. She thought she could pass off another Shih Tzu puppy as my own after his death and told my mother not to tell me.
All I can say is that I am in a financial position to sue this hospital for their negligence. They are commercial money minded freaks who view dogs as nothing but a commodity .
I know that suing them cannot bring back my own puppy but at least it can stop this hospital from causing injustice to other dogs once and for all.
My father wishes to sue them and ask them for a sum of 1 lakh for either opening a dog shelter for strays or for contributing 1 lakh to an existing shelter under our name.

File in consumer forum. will take some time but verdict will be mind blowing. The two pugs who died in Jet filed in Forum and got verdict in his favour too.

You can file in Consumer Forum as told by Anil & I think you should definitely approach the following authorities with a written complaint against the doctors involved :

1. Veterinary Council of India, New Delhi
2. Animal Welfare Board of India
3. Animal Resources Department ( ARD Ministry )

This wont get the dog back but at least the docs will think 100 times before doing the same to any other dog. From Consumer Forum you will get the compensation & from VCI, you can demand a strict action for Negligence of the Doctor.
