Legal Question

Asked on: 10/29/12, 7:42 am

I purchased a puppy in September of this year from a pet store in the mall. the pet store went over paper work with us that stated that the puppy was up to date on vaccinations, and that it had been treated for an upper respiratory infection and it was cleared by the Vet that services their animals. Before leaving we purchased insurance from Petmax Health Protection Inc. to make sure we would be covered for any surprise illnesses. The following day we took the puppy to the vet for the first check up. The vet found parasites, and ordered treatment, the next day I took the puppy back because it was struggling to breath. The puppy was diagnosed with pneumonia treatment was ordered and puppy was hospitalized and put into quarantine. to make a long story short the cost of all this treatment was horrendous. well over $4500.00 We filed with petmax, and in turn we received a check for $95.00 and a letter stating that the vet services were not covered. I'm kind of at a lost and don't know which way to turn next. Your help or input is appreciated.
