Q: Should I start a lawsuit

October 12, 2009 | By Florasbabies | 7 answers | Expired: 1886 days ago

We bought a cleaning product that was "pet safe." The company changed the product and it is no longer "pet safe." We found this out the hard way with our cat. The only difference with the outside of the product packaging was one word in the name. Same size, color,price. That's why we didn't know it was changed until after problems began. In the pamphlet inside the box it never actually said it was not pet safe. I found this out by researching the product ingredients. We have had over $500 in vet bills because of this. Pain and suffering doesn't apply in lawsuits with a pet. Too bad with that because I've been stressed over the whole situation and every time my cat had a seizure. Should I just get over my anger with this company or take it further with a lawsuit?

i think kit would be more productive to sue them to change the label to not safe for pets. the amt you could win in sueing them for money would help you pay your vet bill but sueing them for the label could help thousands

I think you should contact a lawyer and sue them for your vet bills. Maybe they will realize the pain and agony that their product causes animals. I am glad to hear your pet is doing better

I would certainly do something. I had to pursue a company once because their TREATS nearly killed my cat. Amazingly, she lived another four years (was never quite the same, though) after that horrible time in the emergency hospital. Sorry about what happened.
